Moment maps

Motivated by these tales of symplectic embeddings and my desire to get acquainted with both sides of the mirror in mirror symmetry, I have been writing some [developing] notes on symplectic geometry. The extract featured here focuses on moment maps and Delzant’s theorem; an introduction to symplectic toric geometry, if you will. These are intended to be a reference tool and springboard for future posts – some of which will compare the algebraic and symplectic flavours of toric geometry – and are heavily based on the notes of De Silva and of Jeffrey.
