AdS Poisson homogeneous spaces and Drinfel’d doubles

In this paper (arXiv:1701.04902) the correspondence between Poisson homogeneous spaces over a Poisson-Lie group G and Lagrangian Lie subalgebras of the classical double D(𝔤) is revisited and explored in detail for the case in which 𝔤=D(𝔞) is a classical double itself. We apply these results to give an explicit description of all 2d Poisson homogeneous spaces over the group SL(2,R)≅SO(2,1), namely 2d anti de Sitter space, 2d hyperbolic space and the lightcone in 3d Minkowski space. We show how each of these spaces is obtained as a quotient with respect to a Poisson-subgroup for one of the three inequivalent Lie bialgebra structures on sl(2,R) and as a coisotropic one for the others. We then classify the Poisson homogeneous structures for 3d anti de Sitter space AdS3 and show that the ones that are quotients by a Poisson subgroup are determined by a three-parameter family of classical r-matrices for so(2,2), while the coisotropic cases are much more numerous. In particular, we present the two Poisson homogeneous structures on AdS3 that arise from two Drinfel’d double structures on SO(2,2). The first one realises AdS3 as a quotient of SO(2,2) by the Poisson-subgroup SL(2,R), while the second one, the non-commutative spacetime of the twisted κ-AdS deformation, realises AdS3 as a coisotropic Poisson homogeneous space.
