  • We consider a family of birational maps $ \varphi_k $ in dimension 4, arising in the context of cluster algebras from a mutation-periodic quiver of period 2. We approach the dynamics of the family $ \varphi_k $ using Poisson geometry tools, namely the properties of the restrictions of the maps $ \varphi_k $ and their fourth iterate $ \varphi^{(4)}_k $ to the symplectic leaves of an appropriate Poisson manifold $ (\mathbb{R}^4_+, P) $. These restricted maps are shown to belong to a group of symplectic birational maps of the plane which is isomorphic to the semidirect product $ SL(2, \mathbb{Z})\ltimes\mathbb{R}^2 $. The study of these restricted maps leads to the conclusion that there are three different types of dynamical behaviour for $ \varphi_k $ characterized by the parameter values $ k = 1 $, $ k = 2 $ and $ k\geq 3 $.
