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 ...

by - arXiv
We discuss a quantum counterpart of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from 'hard' symplectic geometry. They can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables and their joint measurements in operational quantum mechanics.

These notes give an introduction to embedded contact homology (ECH) of contact three-manifolds, gathering many basic notions which are scattered across a number of papers. We also discuss the origins of ECH, including various remarks and examples.

Book cover: Introduction to Symplectic Field TheoryIntroduction to Symplectic Field Theory
by - arXiv
We sketch in this article a new theory, which we call Symplectic Field Theory or SFT, which provides an approach to Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic manifolds and their Lagrangian submanifolds in the spirit of topological field theory.
