A Non-Linear Generalisation of the Cayley Transformation for the Group of Symplectomorphisms

Hovhannes Khudaverdian (University of Manchester)

I will discuss the notion of Cayley transformation for the orthogonal an symplectic groups and its non-linear generalisation suggested by Fedosov. It is important for constructing symplectomorphisms generated by Hamiltonians.
