Calculus on Symplectic Manifolds

Jan Slovak (Masaryk U, Brno)

I shall discuss analogues on symplectic manifolds of de Rham complex on differential manifolds. Such constructions lead to Fedosov structures. We shall relate these complexes to tractor calculus for parabolic manifolds and the algebraic construction of the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand complexes on partial flag manifolds. The talk reflects joint work with Michael Eastwood (ANU).
