Abstract: This course is meant to give a compact introduction to symplectic geometry with an overview over essential main phenomena, methods and results. Major emphasis will lie on the phenomenon of symplectic rigidity. The method of pseudoholomorphic curves will be introduced and explained along examples, but not thoroughly be deduced. A large part of the course will concern the field of Hamiltonian dynamical systems.
