Symplectic geometry of unbiasedness and critical points of a potential

The goal of these notes is to show that the classification problem of algebraically unbiased system of projectors has an interpretation in symplectic geometry. This leads us to a description of the moduli space of algebraically unbiased bases as critical points of a potential functions, which is a Laurent polynomial in suitable coordinates. The Newton polytope of the Laurent polynomial is the classical Birkhoff polytope, the set of double stochastic matrices. Mirror symmetry interprets the polynomial as a Landau-Ginzburg potential for corresponding Fano variety and relates the symplectic geometry of the variety with systems of unbiased projectors
