Principal S1-bundles

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 203)


A very important theorem in the geometry of contact manifolds, and the start of the modern theory, is the Boothby–Wang theorem, which states that a compact regular contact manifold is a principal circle bundle over a symplectic manifold of integral class. We will prove this result in Section 3.3. In preparation for this we review principal circle bundles in this chapter.
