Symplectic maps can be considered as symmetries of a geometric structure (a symplectic form) on a manifold, and as a mathematical model of admissible motions of classical mechanics. I discuss a number of rigidity phenomena of algebraic, geometric, and dynamical nature exhibited by these maps, focusing on a recent work with Egor Shelukhin.
