Almost symplectic manifold

Summary

In differential geometry, an almost symplectic structure on a differentiable manifold is a two-form on that is everywhere non-singular.[1] If in addition is closed then it is a symplectic form.

An almost symplectic manifold is an Sp-structure; requiring to be closed is an integrability condition.
