This volume contains the refereed proceedings of two symposia on symplectic geometry and quantization problems which were held in Japan in July 1993. The purpose of the symposia was to discuss recent progress in a range of related topics in symplectic geometry and mathematical physics, including symplectic groupoids, geometric quantization, noncommutative differential geometry, equivariant cohomology, deformation quantization, topological quantum field theory, and knot invariants. The book provides insight into how these different topics relate to one another and offers intriguing new problems. Providing a look at the frontier of research in symplectic geometry and quantization, this book is suitable as a source book for a seminar in symplectic geometry.
