New Perspectives and Challenges in Symplectic Field Theory - Miguel Abreu, Francois Lalonde and Leonid Polterovich

The papers presented in this volume are written by participants of the "Symplectic and Contact Topology, Quantum Cohomology, and Symplectic Field Theory" symposium. The workshop was part of a semester-long joint venture of The Fields Institute in Toronto and the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques in Montreal.

The twelve papers cover the following topics: Symplectic Topology, the interaction between symplectic and other geometric structures, and Differential Geometry and Topology.

The Proceeding concludes with two papers that have a more algebraic character. One is related to the program of Homological Mirror Symmetry: the author defines a category of extended complex manifolds and studies its properties. The subject of the final paper is Non-commutative Symplectic Geometry, in particular the structure of the symplectomorphism group of a non-commutative complex plane.

The in-depth articles make this book a useful reference for graduate students as well as research mathematicians.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and topology.
