### Lagrangian complement in a symplectic vector bundle

A standard, folk result in symplectic geometry states that:
in a symplectic vector bundle $(E,\pi,B,\omega)$, any lagrangian subbundle $L$ admits a lagrangian complement $L'$.
Having to use this ...

### Reference on elements of finite order in principal congruence subgroups of symplectic groups

We should start with the definition of the symplectic group for an arbitrary ring $R$.
The symplectic group $Sp(g,R)$ is the subgroup of $SL(2g,R)$ such that all elements satisfy $M=J_g^t M J_g$ with ...

### Representation of double cover of $U(n)$ on eigenspaces of harmonic oscillator

Consider the metaplectic representation of $Mp(n)$ on $L^2(\mathbb R^n)$. We can view $U(n)$ as a subgroup of $Sp(n)$ and so inside $Mp(n)$ is a double cover $\tilde U(n)$ of $U(n)$. The restriction ...
