**Lectures on the Geometry of Quantization**

by Sean Bates, Alan Weinstein

**Publisher**: University of California at Berkeley 1997**ISBN/ASIN**: 0821807986**ISBN-13**: 9780821807989**Number of pages**: 134

**Description**:

This is an introduction to the ideas of microlocal analysis and the related symplectic geometry, with an emphasis on the role which these ideas play in formalizing the transition between the mathematics of classical dynamics (hamiltonian flows on symplectic manifolds) and that of quantum mechanics (unitary flows on Hilbert spaces).
