This seminar was established to encourage ongoing interaction between geometers at Stanford University and the University of California (Berkeley, Davis, and Santa Cruz). Over the years, lectures presented have provided a panorama of developments in symplectic and contact geometry and topology, Poisson geometry, quantization theory, and applications.

This volume includes papers by several of the distinguished seminar participants. The diversity of the topics from the seminar are reflected in the informative presentations. A wide range of topics are presented in the book, including symplectic topology, Hamiltonian dynamics, quantum cohomology and mirror symmetry, infinite-dimensional symplectic geometry, the theory of Hamiltonian group actions, and quantization.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in symplectic geometry and topology and applications.
