Symplectic Killing spinors

Svatopluk Krýsl (2012)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae


Let ( M , ω ) be a symplectic manifold admitting a metaplectic structure (a symplectic analogue of the Riemannian spin structure) and a torsion-free symplectic connection . Symplectic Killing spinor fields for this structure are sections of the symplectic spinor bundle satisfying a certain first order partial differential equation and they are the main object of this paper. We derive a necessary condition which has to be satisfied by a symplectic Killing spinor field. Using this condition one...

Symplectic Capacities in Manifolds

Alfred Künzle (1997)

Banach Center Publications


Symplectic capacities coinciding on convex sets in the standard symplectic vector space are extended to any subsets of symplectic manifolds. It is shown that, using embeddings of non-smooth convex sets and a product formula, calculations of some capacities become very simple. Moreover, it is proved that there exist such capacities which are distinct and that there are star-shaped domains diffeomorphic to the ball but not symplectomorphic to any convex set.
