Gerstenhaber Algebras and BV-Algebras in Poisson Geometry

The purpose of this paper is to establish an explicit correspondence between various geometric structures on a vector bundle with some well-known algebraic structures such as Gerstenhaber algebras and BV-algebras. Some applications are discussed. In particular, we find an explicit connection between the Koszul–Brylinski operator and the modular class of a Poisson manifold. As a consequence, we prove that Poisson homology is isomorphic to Poisson cohomology for unimodular Poisson structures.
