Function theory on symplectic manifolds

Colloquium presented by Leonid Polterovich

It has been recently observed that function spaces associated to a symplectic manifold exhibit unexpected properties and surprising structures, giving rise to new tools and intuition in symplectic topology. In the talk I shall discuss these developments as well as links to other subjects such as dynamics, group theory, Lie algebras and quantum-classical correspondence. The talk is based on a series of joint works with Michael Entov.
