Abstract [en]

In this project we introduce the general idea of geometric quantization and demonstratehow to apply the process on a few examples. We discuss how to construct a line bundleover the symplectic manifold with Dirac’s quantization conditions and how to determine if we are able to quantize a system with the help of Weil’s integrability condition. To reducethe prequantum line bundle we employ real polarization such that the system does notbreak Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle anymore. From the prequantum bundle and thepolarization we construct the sought after Hilbert space.
