Summary:
"This is a monograph on convexity properties of moment mappings in symplectic geometry. The fundamental result in this subject is the Kirwan convexity theorem, which describes the image of a moment map in terms of linear inequalities. This theorem bears a close relationship to perplexing old puzzles from linear algebra, such as the Horn problem on sums of Hermitian matrices, on which considerable progress has been

Finally, it gives an account of a new convexity theorem for moment map images of orbits of a Borel subgroup of a complex reductive group acing on a Kahler manifold, based on potential-theoretic methods in several complex variables."--Jacket."@en ;

This theorem bears a close relationship to perplexing old puzzles from linear algebra, such as the Horn problem on sums of Hermitian matrices, on which considerable progress has been made in recent years following a breakthrough by Klyachko. The book presents a simple local model for the moment polytope, valid in the "generic" case, and an elementary Morse-theoretic argument deriving the Klyachko inequalities and some of their generalizations." ;
