Abstract: The Ginzberg-Knutson conjecture states that for any Hamiltonian Lie group $ G$-action, the corresponding Duistermaat-Heckman measure is log-
concave. It turns out that the conjecture is not true in general, but every well-known counterexample has non-isolated fixed points. In this paper, we prove that if the Hamiltonian circle action on a compact symplectic manifold $ (M,\omega )$ is semifree and all fixed points are isolated, then the Duistermaat-Heckman measure is log-concave. With the same assumption, we also prove that $ \omega $ and every reduced symplectic form satisfy the hard Lefschetz property.
