401-3581-67L Symplectic Geometry
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2017|
|Lecturers||A. Cannas da Silva|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Abstract||This course is an introduction to symplectic geometry -- the geometry of manifolds equipped with a closed non-degenerate 2-form.|
We will discuss symplectic manifolds and transformations, the relation of symplectic to other geometries and some of the interplay with dynamics, eventually in the presence of symmetry groups.
Guided homework assignments will complement the exposition.
|Objective||Introduction to symplectic geometry|
