Poisson-Dirac branes in Poisson-Sigma models

  author={Iv{\'a}n Calvo and Fernando Falceto},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
We analyse the general boundary conditions (branes) consistent with the Poisson-sigma model and study the structure of the phase space of the model defined on the strip with these boundary conditions. Finally, we discuss the perturbative quantization of the model on the disc with a PoissonDirac brane and relate it to Kontsevich’s formula for the deformation quantization of the Dirac bracket induced on the brane. 

Star Products and Branes in Poisson-Sigma Models

We prove that non-coisotropic branes in the Poisson-Sigma model are allowed at the quantum level. When the brane is defined by second-class constraints, the perturbative quantization of the model

Topological and Dynamical Aspects of Jacobi Sigma Models

The geometric properties of sigma models with target space a Jacobi manifold are investigated and a detailed analysis of constraints and ensuing gauge symmetries in the Hamiltonian approach is performed.

Supersymmetric WZ-Poisson Sigma Model and Twisted Generalized Complex Geometry

It has been shown recently that extended supersymmetry in twisted first-order sigma models is related to twisted generalized complex geometry in the target. In the general case there are additional

Jacobi sigma models

We introduce a two-dimensional sigma model associated with a Jacobi manifold. The model is a generalisation of a Poisson sigma model, hence providing a topological open string theory. In the

Finite-Dimensional AKSZ–BV Theories

We describe a canonical reduction of AKSZ–BV theories to the cohomology of the source manifold. We get a finite-dimensional BV theory that describes the contribution of the zero modes to the full

Generalized complex geometry, generalized branes and the Hitchin sigma model

Hitchin's generalized complex geometry has been shown to be relevant in compactifications of superstring theory with fluxes and is expected to lead to a deeper understanding of mirror symmetry.

From topological field theory to deformation quantization and reduction

This note describes the functional-integral quantization of two-dimensional topological field theories together with applications to problems in deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds and



Poisson Reduction and Branes in Poisson–Sigma Models

We analyse the problem of boundary conditions for the Poisson–Sigma model and extend previous results showing that non-coisotropic branes are allowed. We discuss the canonical reduction of a Poisson

Boundary G/G Theory and Topological Poisson–Lie Sigma Model

We study a boundary version of the gauged WZW model with a Poisson–Lie group G as the target. The Poisson–Lie structure of G is used to define the Wess–Zumino term of the action on surfaces with

Poisson sigma models and symplectic groupoids

We consider the Poisson sigma model associated to a Poisson manifold. The perturbative quantization of this model yields the Kontsevich star product formula. We study here the classical model in the


A class of two-dimensional field theories, based on (generically degenerate) Poisson structures and generalizing gravity-Yang–Mills systems, is presented. Locally, the solutions of the classical

Classical Solutions for Poisson Sigma Models on a Riemann surface

We determine the moduli space of classical solutions to the field equations of Poisson Sigma Models on arbitrary Riemann surfaces for Poisson structures with vanishing Poisson form class. This

Coisotropic submanifolds in Poisson geometry and branes in the Poisson sigma model

Abstract.General boundary conditions (‘branes’) for the Poisson sigma model are studied. They turn out to be labeled by coisotropic submanifolds of the given Poisson manifold. The role played by

Topological Poisson sigma models on Poisson-Lie groups

We solve the topological Poisson Sigma model for a Poisson-Lie group G and its dual G*. We show that the gauge symmetry for each model is given by its dual group that acts by dressing transformations

A Path Integral Approach¶to the Kontsevich Quantization Formula

Abstract: We give a quantum field theory interpretation of Kontsevich's deformation quantization formula for Poisson manifolds. We show that it is given by the perturbative expansion of the path

Two-dimensional gravity and nonlinear gauge theory

Abstract We construct a gauge theory based on nonlinear Lie algebras, which is an extension of the usual gauge theory based on Lie algebras. It is a new approach to generalization of the gauge

Integrability of Poisson Brackets

We discuss the integration of Poisson brackets, motivated by our recent solution to the integrability problem for general Lie brackets. We give the precise obstructions to integrating Poisson
