Integral Submanifolds and Contact Transformations

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


In this chapter we first discuss integral submanifolds of a contact manifold, that is, submanifolds whose tangent vectors belong to the contact subbundle. We then study contact transformations, some characterizations, their transitivity, etc., and end the chapter with several examples.
