Abstract

We extend known prequantization procedures for Poisson and presym- plectic manifolds by defining the prequantization of a Dirac manifold P as a principal U(1)-bundle Q with a compatible Dirac-Jacobi structure. We study the action of Poisson algebras of admissible functions on P on various spaces of locally (with respect to P) defined functions on Q, via hamiltonian vector fields. Finally, guided by examples arising in complex analysis and contact geometry, we propose an extension of the notion of prequantization in which the action of U(1) on Q is permitted to have some fixed points. Dedicated to the memory of Professor Shiing-Shen Chern.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
