Symplectic diffeomorphisms, or symplectomorphisms as they are often called, are the “canonical transformations” which have been known and used by physicists for a long time. They generalize the linear (and affine) symplectic mappings we have been using so far. A basic reference for this chapter is Polterovich [133].
