Many essential theorems in symplectic topology rely on the study of holomorphic curves. I will set up the basic theory, and discuss some of the problems arising in defining these things rigorously. I will then exhibit one of the main examples: Gromov’s non-squeezing theorem. This theorem has an interesting interpretation in physics.
