Euler-Poincaré reduction for systems with configuration space isotropy

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper concerns Lagrangian systems with symmetries, near points with configuration space isotropy. Using twisted parametrisations corresponding to phase space slices based at zero points of tangent fibres, we deduce reduced equations of motion, which are a hybrid of the Euler-Poincaré and Euler-Lagrange equations. Further, we state a corresponding variational principle.
