geometry of physics -- quantum mechanics

This is a sub-entry of

geometry of physics.

So far we have discussed extended prequantum field theory: Lagrangians and their induced action functionals and prequantum n-bundles. Now we turn to actual quantum field theory. A prequantum field theory is supposed to induce a quantum field theory under the last step of higher geometric quantization: a choice of polarization (or equivalent) and the passage to the corresponding space of states of polarized sections of the prequantum n-bundles. This step that connects prequantum field theory with quantum field theory we discuss below in *Geometric Quantization*.

Here we discuss the structure of the *outcome* of this process.
