Overview

Multiplicity diagrams can be viewed as schemes for describing symmetry breaking in quantum physics. The authors take a novel approach, using the techniques of symplectic geometry, and developing in detail some themes touched on in Symplectic Techniques in Physics by V. Guillemin and S. Sternberg: the geometry of the moment map, the Duistermaat-Heckman theorem, the interplay between coadjoint orbits and representation theory, and quantization. Students and researchers in geometry and mathematical physics will find this book fascinating.
