Logicoalgebraic approach to symplectic mechanics

  • F. Barone
  • R. Grassini


A logicoalgebraic approach to symplectic mechanics is suggested, which exhibits the transition from the physical formulation (in terms of observables and states associated with a Boolean σ-algebra) to the geometrical formulation (in terms of symplectic structures) of classical mechanics.
