Every symplectic manifold is a coadjoint orbit

Abstract: Agreeing to work in the category {Diffeology}, we shall see how the moment map identifies every symplectic manifold (M,w) with some coadjoint orbit of its group of isomorphies Diff(M,w). Then, we shall discuss the concept of symplectic diffeological spaces.
