This is an introductory text on the more topological aspects of contact geometry. After discussing some of the fundamental results of contact topology, I move on to a detailed exposition of the original proof of the Lutz-Martinet theorem.

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.

The text covers foundations of symplectic geometry in a modern language. It describes symplectic manifolds and their transformations, and explains connections to topology and other geometries. It also covers hamiltonian fields and hamiltonian actions.
