First Steps Towards a Symplectic Dynamics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 60

Description:
Both the field of dynamical systems and the field of symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with highly integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems questions and symplectic ideas come together in a nontrivial way.

The major goal of these notes is to develop an observation that not only can gauge fields of the Yang-Mills type be unified with the Einstein model of gravitation, but also that when this unification is made they are described by pure geometry.
