Invariant nonholonomic Riemannian structures on three-dimensional Lie groups

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider Riemannian manifolds endowed with a nonholonomic distribution. These structures model mechanical systems with a (positive definite) quadratic Lagrangian and nonholonomic constraints linear in velocities. We classify the left-invariant nonholonomic Riemannian structures on three-dimensional simply connected Lie groups, and describe the equivalence classes in terms of some basic isometric invariants. The classification naturally splits into two cases. In the first case, it reduces to a classification of left-invariant sub-Riemannian structures. In the second case, we find a canonical frame with which to directly compare equivalence classes.
