We study Dirac structures for generalized Courant algebroids, which are doubles of generalized Lie bialgebroids. The cases investigated include graphs of bivector fields and characteristic pairs of some sub-bundles. 
Dirac pairs on Jacobi algebroids
We define Dirac pairs on Jacobi algebroids, which is a generalization of Dirac pairs on Lie algebroids introduced by Kosmann-Schwarzbach. We show the relationship between Dirac pairs on Lie and on
On Quasi-Jacobi and Jacobi-Quasi Bialgebroids
We study quasi-Jacobi and Jacobi-quasi bialgebroids and their relationships with twisted Jacobi and quasi Jacobi manifolds. We show that we can construct quasi-Lie bialgebroids from quasi-Jacobi
Dirac structures for generalized Courant and Courant algebroids
We establish some fundamental relations between Dirac subbundles $L$ for the generalized Courant algebroid $(A\oplus A^{\ast}, \phi+W)$ over a differentiable manifold $M$ and the associated Dirac
Reduction of Poisson Manifolds and Jacobi Manifolds via Dirac Theory
We give two kinds of reduction relating Poisson manifolds and Jacobi manifolds by classifying reducible Dirac and Jacobi-Dirac structures into two classes, respectively. The proof needs only some
Twisted cohomology of Lie algebroids
In this short note we define a new cohomology for a Lie algebroid A, that we call the twisted cohomology of A by an odd cocycle θ in the Lie algebroid cohomology of A. We proof that this cohomology

We define gauge transformations of Jacobi structures on a manifold. This is related to gauge transformations of Poisson structures via the Poissonization. Finally, we discuss how the contact


Generalized Lie bialgebras and Jacobi structures on Lie groups
We study generalized Lie bialgebroids over a single point, that is, generalized Lie bialgebras and we prove that they can be considered as the infinitesimal invariants of Lie groups endowed with a
Exact Gerstenhaber algebras and Lie bialgebroids
We show that to any Poisson manifold and, more generally, to any triangular Lie bialgebroid in the sense of Mackenzie and Xu, there correspond two differential Gerstenhaber algebras in duality, one
The lie bialgebroid of a Poisson-Nijenhuis manifold
We describe a new class of Lie bialgebroids associated with Poisson-Nijenhuis structures.
Conformal Dirac Structures
The Courant bracket defined originally on the sections of a vector bundle TM⊕T*M→M is extended to the direct sum of the 1-jet vector bundle and its dual. The extended bracket allows one to interpret
Jacobi structures revisited
Jacobi algebroids, i.e. graded Lie brackets on the Grassmann algebra associated with a vector bundle which satisfy a property similar to that of the Jacobi brackets, are introduced. They turn out to
Compatible Jacobi manifolds: geometry and reduction
We give a generalization of bi-Hamiltonian manifolds, extending the notion of compatible Poisson tensors to Jacobi structures. We present some necessary and sufficient conditions for two Jacobi
