We prove the existence of a local smooth Levi decomposition for smooth Poisson structures and Lie algebroids near a singular point. This Levi decomposition is a kind of normal form or partial linearization, which was established in the formal case by Wade [Wad97] and in the analytic case by the second author [Zun03]. In particular, in the case of smooth Poisson structures with a compact semisimple linear part, we recover Conn’s smooth linearization theorem [Con85], and in the case of smooth Lie… Expand
Normal forms in Poisson geometry
The structure of Poisson manifolds is highly nontrivial even locally. The first important result in this direction is Conn's linearization theorem around fixed points. One of the main results of thisExpand
On the Local and Global Classification of Generalized Complex Structures
We study a number of local and global classification problems in generalized complex geometry. In the first topic, we characterize the local structure of generalized complex manifolds by proving thatExpand
On Integrable Systems & Rigidity for PDEs with Symmetry
This thesis is divided into two parts. In the first part we study completely integrable systems, and their underlying structures, in detail. We study their deformation theory and the differentExpand
Rigidity around Poisson submanifolds
We prove a rigidity theorem in Poisson geometry around compact Poisson submanifolds, using the Nash–Moser fast convergence method. In the case of one-point submanifolds (fixed points), this implies aExpand
Rigidity of Hamiltonian actions on Poisson manifolds
Abstract This paper is about the rigidity of compact group actions in the Poisson context. The main result is that Hamiltonian actions of compact semisimple type are rigid. We prove it via aExpand
New results on the linearization of Nambu structures
Abstract In a paper with Jean-Paul Dufour in 1999 [4] , we gave a classification of linear Nambu structures, and obtained linearization results for Nambu structures with a nondegenerate linear part.Expand
Linearization of proper groupoids near a fixed point
We prove the following result, conjectured by Alan Weinstein: every smooth proper Lie groupoid near a fixed point is locally linearizable, i.e. it is locally isomorphic to the associated groupoid ofExpand
Déformation par quantification et rigidité des algèbres enveloppantes
Abstract We call a finite-dimensional complex Lie algebra g strongly rigid if its universal enveloping algebra U g is rigid as an associative algebra, i.e., every formal associative deformation isExpand
Linearization of proper groupoids
We prove the following result, conjectured by Alan Weinstein: every smooth proper Lie groupoid near a fixed point is locally linearizable, i.e. it is locally isomorphic to the associated groupoid ofExpand
Abstract We show that proper Lie groupoids are locally linearizable. As a consequence, the orbit space of a proper Lie groupoid is a smooth orbispace (a Hausdorff space which locally looks like theExpand


Linearization Problems for Lie Algebroids and Lie Groupoids
In this Letter, we discuss a series of linearization problems – for Poisson structures, Lie algebroids, and Lie groupoids. The last problem involves a conjecture on the structure of proper groupoids.Expand
Nondegeneracy of the Lie algebra aff(n)
Abstract We show that aff (n) , the Lie algebra of affine transformations of R n , is formally and analytically nondegenerate in the sense of A. Weinstein. This means that every analytic (resp.,Expand
