Moment maps and Riemannian symmetric pairs

We study Hamiltonian actions of a compact Lie group on a symplectic manifold in the presence of an involution on the group and an antisymplectic involution on the manifold. The fixed-point set of the involution on the manifold is a Lagrangian submanifold. We investigate its image under the moment map and conclude that the intersection with the Weyl chamber is an easily described subpolytope of the Kirwan polytope. Of special interest is the integral Kähler case, where much stronger results hold. In particular, we obtain convexity theorems for closures of orbits of the noncompact dual group (in the sense of the theory of symmetric pairs). In the abelian case these results were obtained earlier by Duistermaat. We derive explicit inequalities for polytopes associated with real flag varieties.
