**Symplectic, Poisson, and Noncommutative Geometry**

by Tohru Eguchi, et al.

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 2014**ISBN-13**: 9781107056411**Number of pages**: 290

**Description**:

Symplectic geometry has its origin in physics, but has flourished as an independent subject in mathematics, together with its offspring, symplectic topology. Symplectic methods have even been applied back to mathematical physics; for example, Floer theory has contributed new insights to quantum field theory.
