Summary:
On a symplectic manifold, there is a natural elliptic complex replacing the de Rham complex. It can be coupled to a vector bundle with connection and, when the curvature of this connection is constrained to be a multiple of the symplectic form, we find a new complex. In particular, on complex projective space with its Fubini–Study form and connection, we can build a series of differential complexes akin to the Bernstein–Gelfand–Gelfand complexes from parabolic differential geometry.
