Abstract: This paper explains the recent developments on the symplectic theory of Hamiltonian completely integrable systems on symplectic $ 4$-manifolds, compact or not. One fundamental ingredient of these developments has been the understanding of singular affine structures. These developments make use of results obtained by many authors in the second half of the twentieth century, notably Arnold, Duistermaat, and Eliasson; we also give a concise survey of this work. As a motivation, we present a collection of remarkable results proved in the early and mid-1980s in the theory of Hamiltonian Lie group actions by Atiyah, Guillemin and Sternberg, and Delzant among others, and which inspired many people, including the authors, to work on more general Hamiltonian systems. The paper concludes with a discussion of a spectral conjecture for quantum integrable systems.
