Abstract:

In this paper, as part of a project initiated by A. Mallios consisting of exploring new horizons for \textit{Abstract Differential Geometry} ($\grave{a}$ la Mallios), \cite{mallios1997, mallios, malliosvolume2, modern}, such as those related to the \textit{classical symplectic geometry}, we show that results pertaining to biorthogonality in pairings of vector spaces do hold for biorthogonality in pairings of $\mathcal A$-modules. However, for the \textit{dimension formula} the algebra sheaf $\mathcal A$ is assumed to be a PID. The dimension formula relates the rank of an $\mathcal A$-morphism and the dimension of the kernel (sheaf) of the same $\mathcal A$-morphism with the dimension of the source free $\mathcal A$-module of the $\mathcal A$-morphism concerned. Also, in order to obtain an analog of the Witt's hyperbolic decomposition theorem, $\mathcal A$ is assumed to be a PID while topological spaces on which $\mathcal A$-modules are defined are assumed \textit{connected}.
