    Fields Institute Communications
    Volume: 352003
    MSC: Primary 53; 57; Secondary 37; 58;

    The papers presented in this volume are written by participants of the “Symplectic and Contact Topology, Quantum Cohomology, and Symplectic Field Theory” symposium. The workshop was part of a semester-long joint venture of The Fields Institute in Toronto and the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques in Montreal.

    The twelve papers cover the following topics: Symplectic Topology, the interaction between symplectic and other geometric structures, and Differential Geometry and Topology.

    The Proceeding concludes with two papers that have a more algebraic character. One is related to the program of Homological Mirror Symmetry: the author defines a category of extended complex manifolds and studies its properties. The subject of the final paper is Non-commutative Symplectic Geometry, in particular the structure of the symplectomorphism group of a non-commutative complex plane.

    The in-depth articles make this book a useful reference for graduate students as well as research mathematicians.

    Readership
