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.

This is a course on contact manifolds, which are odd dimensional manifolds with an extra structure called a contact structure. Most of our study will focus on three dimensional manifolds, though many of these notions hold for any odd dimension.

An overview of symplectic geometry – the geometry of symplectic manifolds. From a language of classical mechanics, symplectic geometry became a central branch of differential geometry and topology. This survey gives a partial flavor on this field.

This is an elementary text book for the civil engineering students with no prior background in point-set topology. This is a rather terse mathematical text, but provided with an abundant supply of examples and exercises with hints.
