Location:  1360 East Hall (10:00 AM to 11:00 AM)

Title:  An overview of geometric quantization

Abstract:   Geometric quantization is an attempt to systematically associate Hilbert spaces to symplectic manifolds, and more generally quantum objects to corresponding objects in symplectic geometry. I will describe how this theory goes, with emphasis on complex polarizations, a.k.a. K\"ahler manifolds. Time permitting I will say a few words on the semi-classical limit, which is a way to go from quantum to classical.
