What is it about?

We give a normal form for group actions on manifolds endowed with symplectic structures with mild singularities (called b-symplectic/log-symplectic manifolds). These normal forms give an accurate description of the geometric structure in a neighborhood of the orbit of the group actions.

Why is it important?

b-Symplectic structures appear naturally on symplectic manifolds with boundary and on several physical problems including the 3-body problem. Thus understanding these structures can have important applications in Physical systems when symmetries are considered.


I hope this article is helpful to find new applications in Physics and in the study of Symplectic and Hamiltonian Dynamics with singularities.
