Generalized geometry

I will give a brief introduction to formulation of Hamiltonian mechanics in terms of symplectic geometry. This will be further generalized to Dirac structures, which give rise to generalized geometry. I will define a Courant bracket, being a counterpart of Lie bracket in usual geometry and show two examples when it does naturally appear.
