Lectures on Symplectic Geometry
by Ana Cannas da Silva
Publisher: Springer 2006
Number of pages: 225
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.

Tight and taut submanifolds form an important class of manifolds with special curvature properties, one that has been studied intensively by differential geometers since the 1950's. This book contains six articles by leading experts in the field.

This is an introductory text on the more topological aspects of contact geometry. After discussing some of the fundamental results of contact topology, I move on to a detailed exposition of the original proof of the Lutz-Martinet theorem.
