Ginzburg-Weinstein via Gelfand-Zeitlin

AbstractLet U(n) be the unitary group, and $u(n)^*$ the dual of its Lie algebra, equipped with the Kirillov Poisson structure. In their 1983 paper, Guillemin-Sternberg introduced a densely defined Hamiltonian action of a torus of dimension $(n-1)n/2$ on $u(n)^*$, with moment map given by the Gelfand-Zeitlin coordinates. A few years later, Flaschka-Ratiu described a similar, `multiplicative’ Gelfand-Zeitlin system for the Poisson Lie group $U(n)^*$. By the Ginzburg-Weinstein theorem, $U(n)^*$ is isomorphic to $u(n)^*$ as a Poisson manifold. Flaschka-Ratiu conjectured that one can choose the Ginzburg-Weinstein diffeomorphism in such a way that it intertwines the linear and nonlinear Gelfand-Zeitlin systems. Our main result gives a proof of this conjecture, and produces a canonical Ginzburg-Weinstein diffeomorphism.
