This quantity serves as an extension of excessive school-level reports of geometry and algebra, and proceeds to extra complex issues with an axiomatic process. comprises an introductory bankruptcy on projective geometry, then explores the family members among the elemental theorems; higher-dimensional house; conics; coordinate structures and linear modifications; quadric surfaces; and the Jordan canonical shape.

10), in analogy with the notation for “f -related’’ bivector fields on a manifold. Similarly, f : N → M is a backward Dirac map, or simply b-Dirac, if LN = {(Y, df ∗ α) | Y ∈ T N, α ∈ T ∗ M and (df (Y ), α) ∈ LM }. 11) If LM and LN are associated with twisted presymplectic structures ωM and ωN , then a b-Dirac map is just a map satisfying f ∗ ωM = ωN . As before, we will write LN = f ∗ LM to denote that f is a b-Dirac map. Note that f ∗ LM is always a well-defined, though not necessarily smooth, subbundle of T N, in contrast with f∗ LN , which may not be well defined at all.

S. 67). Comparing the two ∗ α replaced by any formulas, we see that the resulting equation makes sense for ρM element in C ∞ (M, g∗ ). On the other hand, since the equation is C ∞ (M)-linear with respect to this element, we may assume that the element is a constant a ∈ g∗ (and the remaining appearances of ρM become ρ). s. 68), becomes −(dµ)(ρ(v), (σ ∨ )∗ a) − Lρ(v) µ, (σ ∨ )∗ a + L(σ ∨ )∗ a µ, ρ(v) = a, [v, σ ∨ µ] , Dirac structures, momentum maps, and quasi-Poisson manifolds or, equivalently, −µ([ρ(v), (σ ∨ )∗ a]) = a, [v, σ ∨ µ] .

65). 65) on an arbitrary 1-form µ ∈ 1 (G). The left-hand side gives J ∗ µ, [ρM (v), π (α)] = d(J ∗ µ)(ρM (v), π (α)) + LρM (v) J ∗ µ, π (α) − Lπ (α) J ∗ µ, ρM (v) ∗ ∗ (α)) − LρM (v) µ, (σ ∨ )∗ ρM (α) = −(dµ)(ρ(v), (σ ∨ )∗ ρM + L(σ ∨ )∗ ρM∗ (α) µ, ρ(v) . 67) Evaluating µ on the right-hand side, we get − LρM (v) (α), ρM σ ∨ µ = −LρM (v) α, ρM σ ∨ µ + α, [ρM (v), ρM σ ∨ µ] . Now, using [ρM (v), ρM (v)] ˜ = ρM ([v, v]) ˜ + ρM LρM (v) (v) ˜ for v˜ = σ ∨ µ ∈ ∞ C (M, g), we get ∗ ∗ ∗ −LρM (v) ρM (α), σ ∨ µ + ρM (α), [v, σ ∨ µ] + ρM (α), LρM (v) (σ ∨ µ) .
