### How to calculate the exterior derivative on manifolds of smooth mappings?

Let $S$ be a compact finite-dimensional manifold $S$ and $(M, \omega)$ a symplectic manifold. The space of smooth maps from $S$ to $M$, denoted by $\mathcal{M}$, has a canonical infinite-dimensional ...

### The norm-squared of a moment map behaves like a Morse-Bott function

Let $G$ be a compact Lie group with Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$. Let $<.,>$ denote a $G$-invariant inner product on $\mathfrak{g}$. Let $(M,\omega)$ be a symplectic compact manifold endowed with ...

### Question about an example in symplectic geometry

Let M be a coadjoint orbit of dimension 6 of $SU(3)$, and let T be the maximal torus in $SU(3)$. If we denote $\mu : M \longrightarrow \mathbb{R}^2$ the moment map associated to the action of T on M, ...

### Infinitesimal orbit type decomposition of Hamiltonian $G$-manifolds

Let $G$ be a compact connected Lie group acting in a Hamiltonian fashion on a symplectic manifold $M$ with momentum map $\mu:M\to \mathfrak{g}^\ast$, where $\mathfrak{g}$ is the Lie algebra of $G$. ...

### What is general expression for the moment map of a Kaehler Hamiltonian G-manifold

A Kaehler Hamiltonian G-manifold is a Kaehler manifold with a Hamiltonian G-action, i.e., a G-action generated by a moment map. In particular, the Killing vector fields which generate the G-action are ...

### An example of Guillemin Sternberg Conjecture

Guillemin Sternberg Conjecture(proved) says that for symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$ with $[Q,R]=0$ condiction, with compact group action $G$, such that $\mu:M\to \mathfrak g^*$ is regular at $0$, ...

### Why ask for the co-moment map to preserve brackets?

Let $G$ be a Lie group and $(M, \omega)$ a symplectic manifold. An action of $G$ on $M$ is Hamiltonian if it is equipped with a co-moment map $\widetilde{\mu} : \mathfrak{g} \to C^\infty(M)$ which is ...
