Introduction to Symplectic Field Theory

Introduction to Symplectic Field Theory
by Y. Eliashberg, A. Givental, H. Hofer

Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 102

Description:
We sketch in this article a new theory, which we call Symplectic Field Theory or SFT, which provides an approach to Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic manifolds and their Lagrangian submanifolds in the spirit of topological field theory, and at the same time serves as a rich source of new invariants of contact manifolds and their Legendrian submanifolds.
