Project: Geometric aspects of mechanics and control theory

project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-08
abstract
There is a clear link between geometric control theory and classical mechanics of system subjected to (velocity-depending) constraints. In this project, we investigate within a geometric formalism the decoupling and symmetry reduction of (non-holonomic) Langrangian systems and the general structure of the set of reachable points of a control system.
