The symplectic approach, the separation of variables based on Hamiltonian systems, for the plane elasticity problem of quasicrystals with point group 12 mm is developed. By introducing appropriate transformations, the basic equations of the problem are converted to two independent Hamiltonian dual equations, and the associated Hamiltonian operator matrices are obtained. The study of the operator matrices shows the feasibility of the method. Without any assumptions, the general solution is presented for the problem with mixed boundary conditions.
