Abstract

I will explain the basics of deformation quantization of Poisson
algebras (an important tool in mathematical physics). Roughly, it is a
family of associative algebras deforming the original commutative
algebra. Following Fedosov, I will describe a classification of
quantizations of (algebraic) symplectic manifolds.
