Title: Modular Class of a Lie algebroid with a Nambu Structure

Speaker: Shilpa Gondhali, University of Haifa

Abstract: We will begin with a few definitions, will introduce cohomology and homology theories for Lie algebroids with a regular Nambu structure. We will introduce the notion of a modular class of a Lie algebroid $A$ that are dually locally spanned by smooth functions on $M$ and are equipped with a Nambu structure. As an application of modular class, we will discuss a duality isomorphism connecting these theories when the modular class is null. This is part of joint work with Goutam Mukherjee and Apurba Das.
