Overview

This comprehensive modern account of the theory of Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids reveals their importance in differential geometry, in particular, their relations with Poisson geometry and general connection theory. It covers much research since the mid 1980s, including the first analysis in book form of Poisson groupoids, Lie bialgebroids and double vector bundles. The volume will be of great interest to all learning the modern theory of Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids.
