Number of pages: 134

This is an introduction to the ideas of microlocal analysis and the related symplectic geometry, with an emphasis on the role which these ideas play in formalizing the transition between the mathematics of classical dynamics (hamiltonian flows on symplectic manifolds) and that of quantum mechanics (unitary flows on Hilbert spaces).

Both dynamical systems and symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems and symplectic ideas come together.

Systematic introduction to the geometry of linear braided spaces. These are versions of Rn in which the coordinates xi have braid-statistics described by an R-matrix. From this starting point we survey the author's braided-approach to q-deformation.
