An Introduction to Symplectic Geometry

Towards a formalism of complex differential forms: The smooth map f: In Appendix A their calculus will be given. We then also have with the identification V V’ via wb as in Section geonetry.

With the aid of these berndtt, we can give the Hamiltonian formulation of classical mechanics and establish the following fundamental short exact sequence: Then there is a d E Sp Ve with f.

The Lie algebra h of the Heisenberg group will naturally be called the Heisenberg algebra. Here is a good time to make the following fundamental observations. Since for a closed 1-form y we have, from 3 in Section 3.

F2 Af and also with a subHam Af algebra Ham2.

Naturally, a metric tensor can be better understood as the differentiable section of a bundle E over M which has as fibers Em the second symmetric power S2T,M of the cotangent space 7 M. As a preliminary we give a standard result on the behavior of parameter-dependent differential forms under transformations, which will be useful in other places.

The positivity of F sets yet another condition on Z. It is recommended that the reader fill in the simple computational details for this example.


An exception is the symbol Ft i Xt atwhose meaning as a differential form on M must be clarified in part b of the proof, since with the general preconditions Xt is not a vector field on M’ and therefore intgoduction symbol i Xt at does not give rise to an inner product in the usual sense.

Chapter 1 Symplectic Algebra The soon to be introduced symplectic manifolds can be thought of locally as symplectic vector spaces. When F M is a submanifold, one can prove that this vector field is jntroduction differentiable. This was a part of their study of the question of the existence of given closed curves, called Hamiltonian trajectories to be defined in the next chapteron the hypersurfaces of constant energy on symplectic manifolds.

Before we can manage this, however, we must make a few general observations. Prove this last remark. The fundamental exact sequence in Remark 3.

The Moment Map which is the usual angular momentum. Then there is the restriction of gc to V. For a differentiable vector bundle on a differentiable manifold with the projection map r: Thus, from Theorem 3. These ideas have revolutionized the subject. Slodowy, from the Mathematische Seminar of the Universitiit Hamburg, were always, as ever, willing to discuss these topics. Now we turn our attention to another concrete example which will serve to make the previous concepts and techniques somewhat more explicit.

Corresponding to Darboux’s Theorem 2. In addition to the essential classic results, such as Darboux’s theorem, more recent results and ideas symplecfic also included here, such as symplectic capacity and pseudoholomorphic curves. The symplectic manifold Al is, in the first view, the phase space, thus the cotangent bundle T’Q to a configuration space Q; but in actuality the conversion does not only concern itself with this situation.


This is also indicated by v 1 w.

Kahler manifolds 45 2. If w is non-degenerate, this gives rise to an isomorphism fll M.

Kiihler manifolds A Kuhler manifold is, roughly speaking, a complex n-manifold thus the transformation functions between the charts are holomorphicequipped with a Kiihler metric, that is, a hernitian metric for which the associated 2 form w is closed. On the way the notion of symplectic morphism will introdction extended to a morphism of those subspaces U which are compatible with the restriction of the symplectic form to U.

Then there is, for every point m E M, a chart U, gyp containing m with coordinates q1, Then F is symplectic exactly when for all h E.

Of the proof, we will only say enough to show that the bundle E – Al is given by the space E’: Then see Appendix D an irreducible geometty representation of G 7r: CESk where the summation is taken over all the permutations o of 1, In particular, when w defines a weak contact structure on Al.

We describe a theorem of Kost. This means a nondegenerate 2-form w is also given. This means in particular that the quantization map A cannot be extended to p, since every properly contained Poisson algebra of p is by Theorem 5. In other words, exactly when
