Can anyone give an mathematical elaboration of the following statement:

Quantization is a functor carrying the category of Hilbert space and linear maps to that of Symplectic manifolds satisfying some conditions specified by laws of Physics.

where is that statement taken from? –  Prathyush May 25 '13 at 13:41
That's not quantization. The direction is backwards. –  user1504 May 25 '13 at 16:05
