### Project Image

Poisson geometry is an active and dynamic area of research in differential geometry, and it is helpful to understand, among many other things, the evolution of classical physical systems. An example of a Poisson structure is **R ^{3}**, decomposed in concentric spheres (leaves). The purpose of the project is to visualize and classify certain types of Poisson structures in dimension three and four, by studying their spaces of leaves.
