Book Title: J-holomorphic curves and symplectic topology

Author: Dusa McDuff and Dietmar Salamon

Book Description:

I read this book from cover to cover during my first sabbatical. It's an essential reference and an excellent exposition of "hard" symplectic topology. That is, the study of symplectic manifolds using techniques involving J-holomorphic curves, as discussed in Gromov's influential paper from 1985.
