**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.
