Reduction and Geometric Prequantization at the Cotangent Level

  • Mircea Puta
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 12)


Let (M,ω) be a symplectic manifold (possibly infinite dimensional), G a Lie group (possibly infinite dimensional) with Lie algebra G and Ø :G M → M a symplectic action of G on M, with and Ad * -equivariant momentum map J: M → G *i.e.
