## Idea

A variant of geometric quantization. Given a symplectic manifold equipped with Mp^c structure, metaplectic quantization forms instead of the geometric prequantum line bundle the symplectic spinor bundle and lets a symplectic Dirac operation induced by a choice of symplectic connection act on its sections (wavefunctions).
