This is a quick tract at the necessities of differential and symplectic geometry including a easy advent to a number of functions of this wealthy framework: analytical mechanics, the calculus of adaptations, conjugate issues & Morse index, and different actual subject matters. A important function is the systematic usage of Lagrangian submanifolds and their Maslov-Hörmander producing services. Following this line of concept, first brought by way of Wlodemierz Tulczyjew, geometric options of Hamilton-Jacobi equations, Hamiltonian vector fields and canonical variations are defined by means of compatible Lagrangian submanifolds belonging to designated well-defined symplectic buildings. This unified perspective has been rather fruitful in symplectic topology, that's the fashionable Hamiltonian atmosphere for the calculus of adaptations, yielding sharp enough life stipulations. This line of research used to be initiated by way of Claude Viterbo in 1992; the following, a few basic effects of this idea are uncovered in bankruptcy eight: facets of Poincaré's final geometric theorem and the Arnol'd conjecture are brought. In bankruptcy 7 components of the worldwide asymptotic remedy of the hugely oscillating integrals for the Schrödinger equation are mentioned: as is celebrated, this ultimately ends up in the idea of Fourier crucial Operators. This brief guide is directed towards graduate scholars in arithmetic and Physics and to all those that need a fast advent to those attractive subjects.

We can give an interpretation of Lagrangian submanifolds as some sort of multi-valued function (just as Riemann surfaces in complex analysis, see Weinstein [124]).
