Mathematical Congress of the Americas 2017

Montreal, Canada July 24 - 28, 2017

Home Talks Schedule [PDF]

Objective: By work of Atiyah, Bott, Duistermaat, Guillemin, Sternberg and many others at the beginning of the 80's, Hamiltonian group actions on symplectic manifolds have become an exciting and full of accomplishments research area. The results obtained and techniques developed over the years have also had an impact on other branches of mathematics. The aim of this special session is to offer to mathematicians interested in this area the opportunity of an ideas exchange concerning recent developments.
