Picard Groups of b-Symplectic Manifolds

Villatoro Joel

Morita equivalences of Poisson manifolds plays an important role in Poisson geometry and its applications. For a given Poisson manifold, the group of Morita self equivalences is the so called Picard group. Relatively few computations of the Picard group are known. In this talk I will discuss a strategy for computing the Picard group of a special class of Poisson manifolds known as b-Symplectic (or log-symplectic) manifolds.
