The workshop was part of a semesterlong 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 Noncommutative Symplectic Geometry, in particular the structure of the symplectomorphism group of a noncommutative complex plane. The indepth articles make this book a useful reference for graduate students as well as research mathematicians. Titles in this series are copublished with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and topology. Table of Contents
