What does the $\Gamma$ notation mean in $\mathcal{H}=\Gamma(\mathbb{C} , \mathcal{L})$?

$\mathcal{H}$ is the space of holomorphic functions on $\mathbb{C}$ and $\mathcal{L}$ is the trivial complex line bundle.

What is $\Gamma$? The context is some introduction to geometric quantization of fields using the holomorphic method.

  • $\begingroup$ $\Gamma$ usually denotes the set of sections. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic May 18 '18 at 18:06
  • $\begingroup$ Probably global sections, i.e. sections over the whole complex plane, i.e. entire functions (functions that are everywhere holomorphic) $\endgroup$ – doetoe May 18 '18 at 18:08
