# The Local Structure of Generalized Contact Bundles

@article{Schnitzer2017TheLS, title={The Local Structure of Generalized Contact Bundles}, author={Jonas Schnitzer and Luca Vitagliano}, journal={International Mathematics Research Notices}, year={2017} }

Generalized contact bundles are odd-dimensional analogues of generalized complex manifolds. They have been introduced recently and very little is known about them. In this paper we study their local structure. Specifically, we prove a local splitting theorem similar to those appearing in Poisson geometry. In particular, in a neighborhood of a regular point, a generalized contact bundle is either the product of a contact and a complex manifold or the product of a symplectic manifold and a…
