    Geometric Invariant Theory and Symplectic Quotients


    Geometric invariant theory (GIT) is an important tool in construction of moduli spaces. By Kempf-Ness theorem, there is a close relationship between GIT and symplectic reduction in the finite dimensional setting. In infinite dimensions, the relationship is more subtle. In this talk, I will go over some examples of such a relationship in finite and infinite dimensions. ...
