There are many different concepts of quantization of a symplectic map \(\chi\) on a symplectic manifold \((M,\omega)\). For example, \(\chi\) can be quantized as a Toeplitz quantum map (or Toeplitz Fourier integral operator), as an automorphism of the full observable algebra, or as an automorphism of the symbol algebra. In the paper, these concepts are discussed and compared in the case where \((M,\omega)\) is a Kähler manifold. The main result is a Toeplitz analogue of the Duistermaat-Singer theorem on automorphisms of the symbol algebra \(\Psi^*/\Psi^{-\infty}\) of pseudodifferential operators [Commun. Pure Appl. Math. 29, 39–47 (1976; Zbl 0317.58017)] which states that, if \(H^1(S^*M,{\mathbb C})=0\), then every order-preserving automorphism of \(\Psi^*/\Psi^{-\infty}\) is either conjugation by an elliptic Fourier integral operator associated to the symplectic map or a transmission. In the paper, an analogous theorem is proven for Toeplitz operators and extended to the case where \(H^1(M,{\mathbb C})=0\) is not assumed.
