  Cotangent bundle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cotangent spaces possess a canonical symplectic 2-form out of which a non-degenerate volume form can be built for the cotangent bundle.
The one-form assigns to a vector in the tangent bundle of the cotangent bundle the application of the element in the cotangent bundle (a linear functional) to the projection of the vector into the tangent bundle (the differential of the projection of the cotangent bundle to the original manifold).
The cylinder is the cotangent bundle of the circle.

In mathematics, a vector bundle is a geometrical construct where to every point of a topological space (or manifold, or algebraic variety) we attach a vector space in a compatible way, so that all those vector spaces, glued together, form another topological space (or manifold or variety).

 Re: Geometric quantization
It's easy to see that tensoring the tangent with the cotangent bundle gives the trivial bundle: all we're saying is that a cotangent vector paired with a tangent vector gives a number.
So the answer for the cotangent bundle has to be minus the answer for the tangent bundle.
And so the basis vector of the cotangent bundle will be: South: dz North: d(1/z) = -z^{-2} dz That minus in front is no problem, since all we care about is the homotopy class of the "gluing map".

Geodesics can also be understood to be the Hamiltonian flows of a very special Hamiltonian defined on the cotangent space of the manifold.
The Hamiltonian is constructed from the metric on the manifold, and is thus a quadratic form consisting entirely of the kinetic term.
Thus, the geodesic lines are the integral curves of the geodesic flow onto the manifold M.
