**Lectures on Symplectic Geometry**

by Ana Cannas da Silva

**Publisher**: Springer 2006**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540421955**ISBN-13**: 9783540421955**Number of pages**: 225

**Description**:

An introduction to symplectic geometry and topology, it provides a useful and effective synopsis of the basics of symplectic geometry and serves as the springboard for a prospective researcher. From an introductory chapter of symplectic forms and symplectic algebra, the book moves on to many of the subjects that serve as the basis for current research: symplectomorphisms, Lagrangian submanifolds, the Moser theorems, Darboux-Moser-Weinstein theory, almost complex structures, KAhler structures, Hamiltonian mechanics, symplectic reduction, etc.
