## Abstract

The problem of quantizing a symplectic manifold (M,ω) can be formulated in terms of the A-model of a complexification of M. This leads to an interesting new perspective on quantization. From this point of view, the Hilbert space obtained by quantization of (M,ω) is the space of (B_{cc}, B^{1}) strings, where B^{cc} and B^{1} are two A-branes; B^{1} is an ordinary Lagrangian A-brane, and Bcc is a space-filling coisotropic A-brane. B^{1} is supported on M, and the choice of ω is encoded in the choice of B^{cc}. As an example, we describe from this point of view the representations of the group SL(2, R{double-struck}). Another application is to Chern-Simons gauge theory.
