A key result in equivariant symplectic geometry is Delzant's classification of compact connected symplectic toric manifolds. The moment map induces an embedding of the quotient of the manifold by the torus action into the dual of the Lie algebra of the torus; its image is a unimodular ("Delzant") polytope; this gives a bijection between unimodular polytopes and isomorphism classes of compact connected symplectic toric manifolds. In this paper we extend Delzant's classification to non-compact… Expand

Action-angle and complex coordinates on toric manifolds
In this article, we provide an exposition about symplectic toric manifolds, which are symplectic manifolds (M, ω) equipped with an effective Hamiltonian T = (S)-action. We summarize the constructionExpand
Convexity of singular affine structures and toric-focus integrable Hamiltonian systems
This work is devoted to a systematic study of symplectic convexity for integrable Hamiltonian systems with elliptic and focus-focus singularities. A distinctive feature of these systems is that theirExpand
Action-angle coordinates on coadjoint orbits and multiplicity free spaces from partial tropicalization
Coadjoint orbits and multiplicity free spaces of compact Lie groups are important examples of symplectic manifolds with Hamiltonian groups actions. Constructing action-angle variables on these spacesExpand
The tropical momentum map: a classification of toric log symplectic manifolds
We give a generalization of toric symplectic geometry to Poisson manifolds which are symplectic away from a collection of hypersurfaces forming a normal crossing configuration. We introduce theExpand
Hamiltonian and symplectic symmetries: An introduction
Classical mechanical systems are modeled by a symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$, and their symmetries, encoded in the action of a Lie group $G$ on $M$ by diffeomorphisms that preserves $\omega$. TheseExpand
In this paper we study topological properties of maps constructed by Thimm's trick with Guillemin and Sternberg's action coordinates on a connected Hamiltonian G-manifold M. Since these maps onlyExpand
A characterisation of toric LCK manifolds
We prove that a compact toric locally conformally K\"ahler manifold which is not K\"ahler admits a toric Vaisman structure, a fact which was conjectured in \cite{mmp}. This is the final step leadingExpand
Scalar-flat Kähler metrics on non-compact symplectic toric 4-manifolds
In a recent paper, Donaldson (J. Gökova Geom. Topol. 3:1–8, 2009) explains how to use an older construction of Joyce (Duke Math. J. 77:519–552, 1995) to obtain four dimensional local models forExpand
Symplectic toric stratified spaces with isolated singularities
The goal of this paper is to classify symplectic toric stratified spaces with isolated singularities. This extends a result of Burns, Guillemin, and Lerman which carries out this classification inExpand
Minimal Lagrangian tori and action-angle coordinates
We investigate which orbits of an $n$-dimensional torus action on a $2n$-dimensional toric Kahler manifold $M$ are minimal. In other words, we study minimal submanifolds appearing as the fibres ofExpand


Local torus actions modeled on the standard representation
Abstract We introduce the notion of a local torus action modeled on the standard representation (for simplicity, we call it a local torus action). It is a generalization of a locally standard torusExpand

An hamiltonian system (M, ω, H) will be told completely integrable if it admits an algebra of first integrals in involution, which allows to define locally action-angle variables with singularities,Expand
Stratified symplectic spaces and reduction
