### Why is geometric quantization (esp. Berezin-Toeplitz quantization) interesting for a symplectic geometer/topologist?

I know that many symplectic geometers are interested in quantization as well.
From what I understood, quantization isn't expected to be used as a tool to answer symplectic questions (as in ...

### Is it true that a nondegenerate minimizing periodic orbit of mechanical Hamiltonian system is hyperbolic

Consider mechanical Hamiltonian system of the form
$$H(p,q)=\dfrac{\Vert p\Vert^2}{2}+V(q),\quad (q,p)\in T^*\mathbb T^n.$$
Here we suppose the periodic orbit $\gamma$ minimizes the Lagrangian ...

### The normalization axiom of a quantization

Guillemin, Ginzburg and Karshon explain a quantization in their book [Chap 6,MR1929136] as follows.
The quantization is a process which associates to a symplectic manifold $M$ a Hilbert space ...

### Id monodromy in hamiltonian dynamics

In my problem I have non autonomous Hamiltonian which depends on 2 parameters (pretty close to oscillator Hamiltonian, $(a+b\cos t +1) p^2+(a+b\cos t-1)q^2$, $a,b$ - parameters). From numerical ...

### C-Periodic boundary conditions

I'm working with linear chain of strongly correlated electrons.
These types of models have problems due to finite size effects, this leads
one to consider C-Periodic boundary conditions as an attempt ...

### How to understand the matrix behind a Hamiltonian?

thanks to the answers I received to my previous questions, I could derive correctly an elegant partition function for my problem which resembles a second quantized model taking the particles to be ...
