We consider the two-body problem on surfaces of constant nonzero curvature and classify the relative equilibria and their stability. On the hyperbolic plane, for each $q>0$ we show there are two relative equilibria where the masses are separated by a distance $q$. One of these is geometrically of elliptic type and the other of hyperbolic type. The hyperbolic ones are always unstable, while the elliptic ones are stable when sufficiently close, but unstable when far apart. On the sphere of positive curvature, if the masses are different, there is a unique relative equilibrium (RE) for every angular separation except $\pi/2$. When the angle is acute, the RE is elliptic, and when it is obtuse the RE can be either elliptic or linearly unstable. We show using a KAM argument that the acute ones are almost always nonlinearly stable. If the masses are equal, there are two families of relative equilibria: one where the masses are at equal angles with the axis of rotation (‘isosceles RE’) and the other when the two masses subtend a right angle at the centre of the sphere. The isosceles RE are elliptic if the angle subtended by the particles is acute and is unstable if it is obtuse. At $\pi/2$, the two families meet and a pitchfork bifurcation takes place. Right-angled RE are elliptic away from the bifurcation point. In each of the two geometric settings, we use a global reduction to eliminate the group of symmetries and analyse the resulting reduced equations which live on a five-dimensional phase space and possess one Casimir function.

In this paper, equations of motion for the problem of a ball rolling without slipping on a rotating hyperbolic paraboloid are obtained. Integrals of motions and an invariant measure are found. A detailed linear stability analysis of the ball’s rotations at the saddle point of the
hyperbolic paraboloid is made. A three-dimensional Poincar´e map generated by the phase flow of the problem is numerically investigated and the existence of a region of bounded trajectories in a neighborhood of the saddle point of the paraboloid is demonstrated. It is shown that a similar problem of a ball rolling on a rotating paraboloid, considered within the framework of the rubber model, can be reduced to a Hamiltonian system which includes the Brower problem as a particular case.

Abstract
pdf (4.53 Mb)
The main goal of the article is to suggest a two-dimensional map that could play the role of a generalized model similar to the standard Chirikov–Taylor mapping, but appropriate for energy-conserving nonholonomic dynamics. In this connection, we consider a Chaplygin sleigh on a plane, supposing that the nonholonomic constraint switches periodically in such a way that it is located alternately at each of three legs supporting the sleigh. We assume that at the initiation of the constraint the respective element (“knife edge”) is directed along the local velocity vector and becomes instantly fixed relative to the sleigh till the next switch. Differential equations of the mathematical model are formulated and an analytical derivation of mapping for the state evolution on the switching period is provided. The dynamics take place with conservation of the mechanical energy, which plays the role of one of the parameters responsible for the type of the dynamic behavior. At the same time, the Liouville theorem does not hold, and the phase volume can undergo compression or expansion in certain state space domains. Numerical simulations reveal phenomena characteristic of nonholonomic systems with complex dynamics (like the rattleback or the Chaplygin top). In particular, on the energy surface attractors associated with regular sustained motions can occur, settling in domains of prevalent phase volume compression together with repellers in domains of the phase volume expansion. In addition, chaotic and quasi-periodic regimes take place similar to those observed in conservative nonlinear dynamics.

Linear Hamiltonian Systems: Quadratic Integrals, Singular Subspaces and Stability
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2018, vol. 23, no. 1, pp. 26-46
Abstract
pdf (693.23 Kb)
A chain of quadratic first integrals of general linear Hamiltonian systems that have
not been represented in canonical form is found. Their involutiveness is established and the
problem of their functional independence is studied. The key role in the study of a Hamiltonian
system is played by an integral cone which is obtained by setting known quadratic first integrals
equal to zero. A singular invariant isotropic subspace is shown to pass through each point
of the integral cone, and its dimension is found. The maximal dimension of such subspaces
estimates from above the degree of instability of the Hamiltonian system. The stability of
typical Hamiltonian systems is shown to be equivalent to the degeneracy of the cone to an
equilibrium point. General results are applied to the investigation of linear mechanical systems
with gyroscopic forces and finite-dimensional quantum systems.

Identification of parameters of the model of toroidal body motion using experimental data
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2018, vol. 14, no. 1, pp. 99-121
Abstract
pdf (1.49 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the motion of heavy toroidal bodies in a fluid. For experimental purposes, models of solid tori with a width of 3 cm and external diameters of 10 cm, 12 cm and 15 cm have been fabricated by the method of casting chemically solidifying polyurethane (density 1100 kg/m^{3}). Tracking of the models is performed using the underwater Motion Capture system. This system includes 4 cameras, computer and specialized software. A theoretical description of the motion is given using equations incorporating the influence of inertial forces, friction and circulating motion of a fluid through the hole. Values of the model parameters are selected by means of genetic algorithms to ensure an optimal agreement between experimental and theoretical data.

Abstract
pdf (606.17 Kb)
In this paper, we develop a model of a controlled spherical robot with an axisymmetric pendulum-type actuator with a feedback system suppressing the pendulum’s oscillations at the final stage of motion. According to the proposed approach, the feedback depends on phase variables (the current position and velocities) and does not depend on the type of trajectory. We present integrals of motion and partial solutions, analyze their stability, and give examples of computer simulation of motion using feedback to illustrate compensation of the pendulum’s oscillations.

Hamilton’s Principle and the Rolling Motion of a Symmetric Ball
Doklady Physics, 2017, vol. 62, no. 6, pp. 314-317
Abstract
pdf (206.42 Kb)
In this paper, we show that the trajectories of a dynamical system with nonholonomic constraints
can satisfy Hamilton’s principle. As the simplest illustration, we consider the problem of a homogeneous ball
rolling without slipping on a plane. However, Hamilton’s principle is formulated either for a reduced system
or for a system defined in an extended phase space. It is shown that the dynamics of a nonholonomic homogeneous
ball can be embedded in a higher-dimensional Hamiltonian phase flow. We give two examples of
such an embedding: embedding in the phase flow of a free system and embedding in the phase flow of the
corresponding vakonomic system.

Retrograde motion of a rolling disk

Abstract
pdf (364.25 Kb)
This paper presents results of theoretical and experi-
mental research explaining the retrograde final-stage rolling of
a disk under certain relations between its mass and geometric
parameters. Modifying the no-slip model of a rolling disk by
including viscous rolling friction provides a qualitative explana-
tion for the disk's retrograde motion. At the same time, the
simple experiments described in the paper completely reject
the aerodynamical drag torque as a key reason for the retro-
grade motion of a disk considered, thus disproving some recent
hypotheses.

Abstract

This is a survey of the main forms of equations of dynamical
systems with non-integrable constraints, divided into two large groups.
The first group contains systems arising in vakonomic mechanics and optimal
control theory, with the equations of motion obtained from the variational
principle, and the second contains systems in classical non-holonomic
mechanics, when the constraints are ideal and therefore the D’Alembert–Lagrange principle holds.

A Chaplygin sleigh with a moving point mass
Bulletin of Udmurt University. Mathematics. Mechanics. Computer Science, 2017, vol. 27, no. 4, pp. 583-589
Abstract
pdf (314.6 Kb)
Nonholonomic mechanical systems arise in the context of many problems of practical significance. A famous model in nonholonomic mechanics is the Chaplygin sleigh. The Chaplygin sleigh is a rigid body with a sharp weightless wheel in contact with the (supporting) surface. The sharp edge of the wheel prevents the wheel from sliding in the direction perpendicular to its plane. This paper is concerned with a Chaplygin sleigh with time-varying mass distribution, which arises due to the motion of a point in the direction transverse to the plane of the knife edge. Equations of motion are obtained from which a closed system of equations with time-periodic coefficients decouples. This system governs the evolution of the translational and angular velocities of the sleigh. It is shown that if the projection of the center of mass of the whole system onto the axis along the knife edge is zero, the translational velocity of the sleigh increases. The trajectory of the point of contact is, as a rule, unbounded.

Invariant measure in the problem of a disk rolling on a plane
Bulletin of Udmurt University. Mathematics. Mechanics. Computer Science, 2017, vol. 27, no. 4, pp. 576-582
Abstract
pdf (312.38 Kb)
This paper addresses the dynamics of a disk rolling on an absolutely rough plane. It is proved that the equations of motion have an invariant measure with continuous density only in two cases: a dynamically symmetric disk and a disk with a special mass distribution. In the former case, the equations of motion possess two additional integrals and are integrable by quadratures by the Euler-Jacobi theorem. In the latter case, the absence of additional integrals is shown using a Poincaré map. In both cases, the volume of any domain in phase space (calculated with the help of the density) is preserved by the phase flow. Nonholonomic mechanics is populated with systems both with and without an invariant measure.

Dynamics of Two Point Vortices in an External Compressible Shear Flow
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2017, vol. 22, no. 8, pp. 893–908
Abstract
pdf (3.4 Mb)
This paper is concerned with a system of equations that describes the motion of two point vortices in a flow possessing constant uniform vorticity and perturbed by an acoustic wave. The system is shown to have both regular and chaotic regimes of motion. In addition, simple and chaotic attractors are found in the system. Attention is given to bifurcations of fixed points of a Poincar´e map which lead to the appearance of these regimes. It is shown that, in the case where the total vortex strength changes, the “reversible pitch-fork” bifurcation is a typical scenario of emergence of asymptotically stable fixed and periodic points. As a result of this bifurcation, a saddle point, a stable and an unstable point of the same period emerge from an elliptic point of some period. By constructing and analyzing charts of dynamical regimes and bifurcation diagrams we show that a cascade of period-doubling bifurcations is a typical scenario of transition to chaos in the system under consideration.

The Chaplygin Sleigh with Parametric Excitation: Chaotic Dynamics and Nonholonomic Acceleration

Abstract
pdf (1.91 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the Chaplygin sleigh with time-varying mass distribution (parametric excitation). The focus is on the case where excitation is induced by a material point that executes periodic oscillations in a direction transverse to the plane of the knife edge of the sleigh. In this case, the problem reduces to investigating a reduced system of two first-order equations with periodic coefficients, which is similar to various nonlinear parametric oscillators. Depending on the parameters in the reduced system, one can observe different types of motion, including those accompanied by strange attractors leading to a chaotic (diffusion) trajectory of the sleigh on the plane. The problem of unbounded acceleration (an analog of Fermi acceleration) of the sleigh is examined in detail. It is shown that such an acceleration arises due to the position of the moving point relative to the line of action of the nonholonomic constraint and the center of mass of the platform. Various special cases of existence of tensor invariants are found.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the dynamics of a top in the form of a truncated ball as it moves without slipping and spinning on a horizontal plane about a vertical. Such a system is described by differential equations with a discontinuous right-hand side. Equations describing
the system dynamics are obtained and a reduction to quadratures is performed. A bifurcation analysis of the system is made and all possible types of the top’s motion depending on the system parameters and initial conditions are defined. The system dynamics in absolute space is examined. It is shown that, except for some special cases, the trajectories of motion are bounded.

Autonomous Strange Nonchaotic Oscillations in a System of Mechanical Rotators

Abstract
pdf (2.26 Mb)
We investigate strange nonchaotic self-oscillations in a dissipative system consisting of three mechanical rotators driven by a constant torque applied to one of them. The external driving is nonoscillatory; the incommensurable frequency ratio in vibrational-rotational
dynamics arises due to an irrational ratio of diameters of the rotating elements involved. It is shown that, when losing stable equilibrium, the system can demonstrate two- or three-frequency quasi-periodic, chaotic and strange nonchaotic self-oscillations. The conclusions of the work are confirmed by numerical calculations of Lyapunov exponents, fractal dimensions, spectral analysis, and by special methods of detection of a strange nonchaotic attractor (SNA): phase sensitivity and analysis using rational approximation for the frequency ratio. In particular, SNA possesses a zero value of the largest Lyapunov exponent (and negative values of the other exponents), a capacitive dimension close to 2 and a singular continuous power spectrum. In general, the results of this work shed a new light on the occurrence of strange nonchaotic dynamics.

The dynamics of a spherical robot of combined type consisting of a spherical shell and a pendulum attached at the center of the shell is considered. At the end of the pendulum a rotor is installed. For this system we carry out a stability analysis for a partial solution which in absolute space corresponds to motion along a circle with constant velocity. Regions of stability of a partial solution are found depending on the orientation of the spherical robot during the motion, its velocity and the radius of the circle traced out by the point of contact.

This paper presents a comparative analysis of computations of the motion of heavy three-bladed screws in a fluid along with experimental results. Simulation of the motion is performed using the theory of an ideal fluid and the phenomenological model of viscous friction. For experimental purposes, models of three-bladed screws with various configurations and sizes were manufactured by casting from chemically hardening polyurethane. Comparison of calculated and experimental results has shown that the mathematical models considered essentially do not reflect the processes observed in the experiments.

Abstract
pdf (2.3 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the rolling motion of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball (Chaplygin top) in a gravitational field on a plane under the assumption that there is no slipping and spinning at the point of contact. We give a description of strange attractors existing in the system and discuss in detail the scenario of how one of them arises via a sequence of perioddoubling bifurcations. In addition, we analyze the dynamics of the system in absolute space and show that in the presence of strange attractors in the system the behavior of the point of contact considerably depends on the characteristics of the attractor and can be both chaotic and nearly quasi-periodic.

One of them is defined by a Carnot group with three generatrices and growth vector (3, 6, 14), the other is defined by two generatrices and growth vector (2, 3, 5, 8). Using a Poincaré map, the nonintegrability of the above systems in the general case is shown. In addition, particular cases are presented in which there exist additional first integrals.

Optimal control of the motion in an ideal fluid of a screw-shaped body with internal rotors
Computer Research and Modeling, 2017, vol. 9, no. 5, pp. 741-759
Abstract
pdf (567.52 Kb)
In this paper we consider the controlled motion of a helical body with three blades in an ideal fluid, which is executed by rotating three internal rotors. We set the problem of selecting control actions, which ensure the motion of the body near the predetermined trajectory. To determine controls that guarantee motion near the given curve, we propose methods based on the application of hybrid genetic algorithms (genetic algorithms with real encoding and with additional learning of the leader of the population by a gradient method) and artificial neural networks. The correctness of the operation of the proposed numerical methods is estimated using previously obtained differential equations, which define the law of changing the control actions for the predetermined trajectory.
In the approach based on hybrid genetic algorithms, the initial problem of minimizing the integral functional reduces to minimizing the function of many variables. The given time interval is broken up into small elements, on each of which the control actions are approximated by Lagrangian polynomials of order 2 and 3. When appropriately adjusted, the hybrid genetic algorithms reproduce a solution close to exact. However, the cost of calculation of 1 second of the physical process is about 300 seconds of processor time.
To increase the speed of calculation of control actions, we propose an algorithm based on artificial neural networks. As the input signal the neural network takes the components of the required displacement vector. The node values of the Lagrangian polynomials which approximately describe the control actions return as output signals . The neural network is taught by the well-known back-propagation method. The learning sample is generated using the approach based on hybrid genetic algorithms. The calculation of 1 second of the physical process by means of the neural network requires about 0.004 seconds of processor time, that is, 6 orders faster than the hybrid genetic algorithm. The control calculated by means of the artificial neural network differs from exact control. However, in spite of this difference, it ensures that the predetermined trajectory is followed exactly.

Control of Body Motion in an Ideal Fluid Using the Internal Mass and the Rotor in the Presence of Circulation Around the Body
Journal of Dynamical and Control Systems, 2017, vol. 23, pp. 435-458
Abstract
pdf (1.49 Mb)
In this paper we study the controlled motion of an arbitrary two-dimensional body in an ideal fluid with a moving internal mass and an internal rotor in the presence of constant circulation around the body. We show that by changing the position of the internal mass and by rotating the rotor, the body can be made to move to a given point, and discuss the influence of nonzero circulation on the motion control. We have found that in the presence of circulation around the body the system cannot be completely stabilized at an arbitrary point of space, but fairly simple controls can be constructed to ensure that the body moves near the given point.

Chaplygin sleigh with periodically oscillating internal mass

Abstract
pdf (854.88 Kb)
We consider the movement of Chaplygin sleigh on a plane that is a solid body with
imposed nonholonomic constraint, which excludes the possibility of motions transversal to the constraint element (“knife-edge”), and complement the model with an attached mass, periodically oscillating relatively to the main platform of the sleigh. Numerical simulations indicate the occurrence of either unrestricted acceleration of the sleigh, or motions with bounded velocities and
momenta, depending on parameters. We note the presence of phenomena characteristic to nonholonomic systems with complex dynamics; in particular, attractors occur responsible for chaotic
motions. In addition, quasiperiodic regimes take place similar to those observed in conservative nonlinear dynamics.

Abstract
pdf (300.44 Kb)
In this paper, we study the free and controlled motion of an arbitrary two-dimensional body with a moving internal material point through an ideal fluid in presence of constant circulation around the body. We perform bifurcation analysis of free motion (with fixed internal mass). We show that by changing the position of the internal mass the body can be made to move to a specified point. There are a number of control problems associated with the nonzero drift of the body in the case of fixed internal mass.

Controlled Motion of a Rigid Body with Internal Mechanisms in an Ideal Incompressible Fluid
Proceedings of the Steklov Institute of Mathematics, 2016, vol. 295, pp. 302-332
Abstract
pdf (1.36 Mb)
We consider the controlled motion in an ideal incompressible fluid of a rigid body
with moving internal masses and an internal rotor in the presence of circulation of the fluid
velocity around the body. The controllability of motion (according to the Rashevskii–Chow
theorem) is proved for various combinations of control elements. In the case of zero circulation,
we construct explicit controls (gaits) that ensure rotation and rectilinear (on average) motion.
In the case of nonzero circulation, we examine the problem of stabilizing the body (compensating
the drift) at the end point of the trajectory. We show that the drift can be compensated for if
the body is inside a circular domain whose size is defined by the geometry of the body and the
value of circulation.

Topology of the configuration space, singularities of the potential, and polynomial integrals of equations of dynamics
Sbornik: Mathematics, 2016, vol. 207, no. 10, pp. 1435–1449
Abstract
For integrable systems with two degrees of freedom there are well-known inequalities connecting the Euler characteristic of the configuration space (as a closed two-dimensional surface) with the number of singular points of Newtonian type of the potential energy. On the other hand, there are results on conditions for ergodicity of systems on a two-dimensional torus with short-range potential depending only on the distance from an attracting or repelling centre. In the present paper we consider the problem of conditions for the existence of nontrivial first integrals that are polynomial in the momenta of the problem of motion of a particle on a multi-dimensional Euclidean torus in a force field whose potential has singularity points. These conditions depend only on the order of the singularity, and in the two-dimensional case they are satisfied by potentials with singularities of Newtonian type.

Abstract
The conditions of stability of ‘pure’ equilibrium states of finite-dimensional dynamical systems of the hydrodynamic type are indicated. Integrable chains allowing full sets of quadratic first integrals are found. The conditions of existence of invariant Gaussian measures in the infinite-dimensional case are discussed. The existence of such measures makes it possible to establish the properties of recurrence of solutions of infinite-dimensional dynamical systems of the hydrodynamic type.

Abstract
pdf (289.71 Kb)
We discuss conditions for the existence of invariant measures of smooth dynamical systems on compact manifolds. If there is an invariant measure with continuously differentiable density, then the divergence of the vector field along every solution tends to zero in the Cesaro sense as time increases unboundedly. Here the Cesaro convergence may be replaced, for example, by any Riesz summation method, which can be arbitrarily close to ordinary convergence (but does not coincide with it). We give an example of a system whose divergence tends to zero in the ordinary sense but none of its invariant measures is absolutely continuous with respect to the `standard' Lebesgue measure (generated by some Riemannian metric) on the phase space. We give examples of analytic systems of differential equations on analytic phase spaces admitting invariant measures of any prescribed smoothness (including a measure with integrable density), but having no invariant measures with positive continuous densities. We give a new proof of the classical Bogolyubov-Krylov theorem using generalized functions and the Hahn-Banach theorem. The properties of signed invariant measures are also discussed.

Polynomial conservation laws for the Lorentz gas and the Boltzmann–Gibbs gas
Russian Mathematical Surveys, 2016, vol. 71, no. 2, pp. 253–290
Abstract
pdf (723.26 Kb)
The problem of conditions ensuring the existence of first integrals that are polynomials in the momenta (velocities) is considered for certain multidimensional billiard systems which play an important role in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. These are the Lorentz gas, a particle in a Euclidean space with (not necessarily convex) scattering domains, and the Boltzmann–Gibbs gas, a system of small identical balls in a rectangular box which collide elastically with one another and the walls of the box. The ergodic properties of such systems are only partially understood: some problems are still waiting for solution, and in certain cases (for instance, when the scatterers are non-convex) the system is known not to be ergodic. An approach to showing the absence of a non-trivial polynomial first integral with continuously differentiable coefficients is developed. The known first integrals for integrable problems in dynamics are mostly polynomials in the momenta (or functions of polynomials). The investigation of multidimensional billiards with non-compact configuration space, when there is no hope for ergodic behaviour, is of particular interest. Applications of the general results on the absence of non-trivial polynomial integrals to problems in statistical mechanics are discussed.

Describing the Motion of a Body with an Elliptical Cross Section in a Viscous Uncompressible Fluid by Model Equations Reconstructed from Data Processing

Abstract
pdf (508.12 Kb)
From analysis of time series obtained on the numerical solution of a plane problem on the motion
of a body with an elliptic cross section under the action of gravity force in an incompressible viscous fluid, a
system of ordinary differential equations approximately describing the dynamics of the body is reconstructed.
To this end, coefficients responsible for the added mass, the force caused by the circulation of the velocity
field, and the resisting force are found by the least square adjustment. The agreement between the finitedimensional
description and the simulation on the basis of the Navier–Stokes equations is illustrated by
images of attractors in regular and chaotic modes. The coefficients found make it possible to estimate the
actual contribution of different effects to the dynamics of the body.

Abstract
pdf (1.65 Mb)
For a Chaplygin sleigh on a plane, which is a paradigmatic system of nonholonomic mechanics, we consider dynamics driven by periodic pulses of supplied torque depending on the instant spatial orientation of the sleigh. Additionally, we assume that a weak viscous force and moment affect the sleigh in time intervals between the pulses to provide sustained modes of the motion associated with attractors in the reduced three-dimensional phase space (velocity, angular velocity, rotation angle). The developed discrete version of the problem of the Chaplygin sleigh is an analog of the classical Chirikov map appropriate for the nonholonomic situation. We demonstrate numerically, discuss and classify dynamical regimes depending on the parameters, including regular motions and diffusive-like random walks associated, respectively, with regular and chaotic attractors in the reduced momentum dynamical equations.

Abstract
pdf (1.23 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the motion of a helical body in an ideal fluid, which is controlled by rotating three internal rotors. It is proved that the motion of the body is always controllable by means of three rotors with noncoplanar axes of rotation. A condition whose satisfaction prevents controllability by means of two rotors is found. Control actions that allow the implementation of unbounded motion in an arbitrary direction are constructed. Conditions under which the motion of the body along an arbitrary smooth curve can be implemented by rotating the rotors are presented. For the optimal control problem, equations of sub-Riemannian geodesics on $SE(3)$ are obtained.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the rolling motion of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball (Chaplygin top) in a gravitational field on a plane under the assumption that there is no slipping and spinning at the point of contact. We give a description of strange attractors existing in the system and discuss in detail the scenario of how one of them arises via a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations. In addition, we analyze the dynamics of the system in absolute space and show that in the presence of strange attractors in the system the behavior of the point of contact considerably depends on the characteristics of the attractor and can be both chaotic and nearly quasi-periodic.

Abstract
pdf (2.21 Mb)
This paper presents a numerical study of the chaotic dynamics of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball (Chaplygin top) rolling on a plane. It is well known that the dynamics of such a system reduces to the investigation of a three-dimensional map, which in the general case has no smooth invariant measure. It is shown that homoclinic strange attractors of discrete spiral type (discrete Shilnikov type attractors) arise in this model for certain parameters. From the viewpoint of physical motions, the trace of the contact point of a Chaplygin top on a plane is studied for the case where the phase trajectory sweeps out a discrete spiral attractor. Using the analysis of the trajectory of this trace, a conclusion is drawn
about the influence of “strangeness” of the attractor on the motion pattern of the top.

On the Extendability of Noether’s Integrals for Orbifolds of Constant Negative Curvature
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2016, vol. 21, no. 7-8, pp. 821-831
Abstract
pdf (630.35 Kb)
This paper is concerned with the problem of the integrable behavior of geodesics on homogeneous factors of the Lobachevsky plane with respect to Fuchsian groups (orbifolds). Locally the geodesic equations admit three independent Noether integrals linear in velocities (energy is a quadratic form of these integrals). However, when passing along closed cycles the Noether integrals undergo a linear substitution. Thus, the problem of integrability reduces to the search for functions that are invariant under these substitutions. If a Fuchsian group is Abelian, then there is a first integral linear in the velocity (and independent of the energy integral). Conversely, if a Fuchsian group contains noncommuting hyperbolic or parabolic elements, then the geodesic flow does not admit additional integrals in the form of a rational function of Noether integrals. We stress that this result holds also for noncompact orbifolds, when there is no ergodicity of the geodesic flow (since nonrecurrent geodesics can form a set of positive measure).

Abstract

In this paper, we consider in detail the 2-body problem in spaces of constant positive curvature $S^2$ and $S^3$. We perform a reduction (analogous to that in rigid body dynamics) after which the problem reduces to analysis of a two-degree-of-freedom system. In the general case, in canonical variables the Hamiltonian does not correspond to any natural mechanical system. In addition, in the general case, the absence of an analytic additional integral follows from the constructed Poincaré section. We also give a review of the historical development of celestial mechanics in spaces of constant curvature and formulate open problems.

This paper is concerned with the dynamics of vortex sources in a deformation flow. The case of two vortex sources is shown to be integrable by quadratures. In addition, the relative equilibria (of the reduced system) are examined in detail and it is shown that in this case the trajectory of vortex sources is an ellipse.

Abstract
pdf (941.28 Kb)
The onset of adiabatic chaos in rigid body dynamics is considered. A comparison of the analytically calculated diffusion coefficient describing probabilistic effects in the zone of chaos with a numerical experiment is made. An analysis of the splitting of asymptotic surfaces is performed and uncertainty curves are constructed in the Poincaré – Zhukovsky problem. The application of Hamiltonian methods to nonholonomic systems is discussed. New problem statements are given which are related to the destruction of an adiabatic invariant and to the acceleration of the system (Fermi’s acceleration).

Abstract
pdf (1.14 Mb)
Computer verification of hyperbolicity is provided based on statistical analysis of the angles of intersection of stable and unstable manifolds for mechanical systems with hyperbolic attractors of Smale – Williams type: (i) a particle sliding on a plane under periodic kicks, (ii) interacting particles moving on two alternately rotating disks, and (iii) a string with parametric excitation of standing-wave patterns by a modulated pump. The examples are of interest as contributing to filling the hyperbolic theory of dynamical systems with physical content.

Abstract
pdf (268.54 Kb)
This paper is concerned with the motion of the Chaplygin sleigh on the surface of a circular cylinder. In the case of inertial motion, the problem reduces to the study of the dynamical system on a (two-dimensional) torus and to the classification of singular points. Particular cases in which the system admits an invariant measure are found.
In the case of a balanced and dynamically symmetric Chaplygin sleigh moving in a gravitational field it is shown that on the average the system has no drift along the vertical.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the motion of an unbalanced heavy three-axial ellipsoid in an ideal fluid controlled by rotation of three internal rotors. It is proved that the motion of the body considered is controlled with respect to configuration variables except for some special cases. An explicit control that makes it possible to implement unbounded motion in an arbitrary direction has been calculated. Directions for which control actions are bounded functions of time have been determined.

Abstract
pdf (3.54 Mb)
In this paper, we present some results on chaotic dynamics in the Suslov problem which describe the motion of a heavy rigid body with a fixed point, subject to a nonholonomic constraint, which is expressed by the condition that the projection of angular velocity onto the body-fixed axis is equal to zero. Depending on the system parameters, we find cases of regular (in particular, integrable) behavior and detect various attracting sets (including strange attractors) that are typical of dissipative systems.We construct a chart of regimes with regions characterizing chaotic and regular regimes depending on the degree of conservativeness. We examine in detail the effect of reversal, which was observed previously in the motion of rattlebacks.

Abstract
pdf (445.79 Kb)
In this paper, we develop the results obtained by J.Hadamard and G.Hamel concerning the possibility of substituting nonholonomic constraints into the Lagrangian of the system without changing the form of the equations of motion. We formulate the conditions for correctness of such a substitution for a particular case of nonholonomic systems in the simplest and universal form. These conditions are presented in terms of both generalized velocities and quasi-velocities. We also discuss the derivation and reduction of the equations of motion of an arbitrary wheeled vehicle. In particular, we prove the equivalence (up to additional quadratures) of problems of an arbitrary wheeled vehicle and an analogous vehicle whose wheels have been replaced with skates. As examples, we consider the problems of a one-wheeled vehicle and a wheeled vehicle with two rotating wheel pairs.

Hyperbolic chaos in self-oscillating systems based on mechanical triple linkage: Testing absence of tangencies of stable and unstable manifolds for phase trajectories

Abstract
pdf (1.96 Mb)
Dynamical equations are formulated and a numerical study is provided for selfoscillatory model systems based on the triple linkage hinge mechanism of Thurston–Weeks–Hunt–MacKay. We consider systems with a holonomic mechanical constraint of three rotators as well as systems, where three rotators interact by potential forces. We present and discuss some quantitative characteristics of the chaotic regimes (Lyapunov exponents, power spectrum). Chaotic dynamics of the models we consider are associated with hyperbolic attractors, at least, at relatively small supercriticality of the self-oscillating modes; that follows from numerical analysis of the distribution for angles of intersection of stable and unstable manifolds of phase trajectories on the attractors. In systems based on rotators with interacting potential the hyperbolicity is violated starting from a certain level of excitation.

Abstract
pdf (4.44 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the process of the free fall of a three-bladed screw in a fluid. The investigation is performed within the framework of theories of an ideal fluid and a viscous fluid. For the case of an ideal fluid the stability of uniformly accelerated rotations (the Steklov solutions) is studied. A phenomenological model of viscous forces and torques is derived for investigation of the motion in a viscous fluid. A chart of Lyapunov exponents and bifucation diagrams are computed. It is shown that, depending on the system parameters, quasiperiodic and chaotic regimes of motion are possible. Transition to chaos occurs through cascade of period-doubling bifurcations.

Bifurcations and chaos in the dynamics of two point vortices in an acoustic wave
International Journal of Bifurcation and Chaos, 2016, vol. 26, no. 4, 1650063, 13 pp.
Abstract
pdf (1.38 Mb)
In this paper, we consider a system governing the motion of two point vortices in a flow excited by an external acoustic forcing. It is known that the system of two vortices is integrable in the absence of acoustic forcing. However, the addition of the acoustic forcing makes the system much more complex, and the system becomes nonintegrable and loses the phase volume preservation property. The objective of our research is to study chaotic dynamics and typical bifurcations. Numerical analysis has shown that the reversible pitchfork bifurcation is typical. Also, we show that the existence of strange attractors is not characteristic for the system under consideration.

Abstract

In this paper, we focus on the study of two-dimensional plate dynamics on the Lobachevskii plane $L^2$. First of all, we consider the free motion of such a plate, which is a pseudospherical analog of dynamics of the Euler top, and also present an analog of the Euler–Poisson equations enabling us to study the motion of the body in potential force fields having rotational symmetry. We present a series of integrable cases, having analogs in Euclidean space, for different fields. Moreover, in the paper, a partial qualitative analysis of the dynamics of free motion of a plate under arbitrary initial conditions is made and a number of computer illustrations are presented which show a substantial difference of the motion from the case of Euclidean space. The study undertaken in the present paper leads to interesting physical onsequences, which enable us to detect the influence of curvature on the body dynamics.

The phenomenon of reversal in the Euler–Poincaré–Suslov nonholonomic systems
Journal of Dynamical and Control Systems, 2016, vol. 22, no. 4, pp. 713–724
Abstract
The development of robotics makes it necessary to study the problem of controlling nonholonomic systems (Svinin et al., Regul Chaotic Dyn. 2013; 18(1–2): 126–143, Borisov et al., Regul. Chaotic Dyn. 2013; 18(1–2): 144–158, Ivanova et al., Regul Chaotic Dyn. 2014; 19(1): 140–143). In this paper, the dynamics of nonholonomic systems on Lie groups with a left-invariant kinetic energy and left-invariant constraints are considered. Equations of motion form a closed system of differential equations on the corresponding Lie algebra. In addition, the effect of change in the stability of steady motions of these systems with the direction of motion reversed (the reversal found in rattleback dynamics) is discussed. As an illustration, the rotation of a rigid body with a fixed point and the Suslov nonholonomic constraint as well as the motion of the Chaplygin sleigh is considered.

Invariant and quasi-invariant measures on infinite-dimensional spaces
Doklady Mathematics, 2015, vol. 92, no. 3, pp. 743–746
Abstract
Extensions of locally convex topological spaces are considered such that finite cylindrical measures which are not countably additive on their initial domains turn out to be countably additive on the extensions. Extensions of certain transformations of the initial spaces with respect to which the initial measures are invariant or quasi-invariant to the extensions of these spaces are described. Similar questions are considered for differentiable measures. The constructions may find applications in statistical mechanics and quantum field theory.

Abstract
pdf (481.65 Kb)
We consider differential equations with quadratic right-hand sides which admit two quadratic first integrals, one of which is a positive definite quadratic form. We present general conditions under which a linear change of variables reduces this system to some "canonical" form. Under these conditions the system turns out to be nondivergent and is reduced to Hamiltonian form, however, the corresponding linear Lie–Poisson bracket does not always satisfy the Jacobi identity. In the three-dimensional case the equations are reduced to the classical equations of the Euler top, and in the four-dimensional space the system turns out to be superintegrable and coincides with the Euler–Poincaré equations on some Lie algebra. In the five-dimensional case we find a reducing multiplier after multiplication with which the Poisson bracket satisfies the Jacobi identity. In the general case, we prove that there is no reducing multiplier for $n>5$. As an example, we consider a system of Lotka–Volterra type with quadratic right-hand sides, which was studied already by Kovalevskaya from the viewpoint of the conditions for uniqueness of its solutions as functions of complex time.

This is a reply to the comment by V.F. Zhuravlev (see Usp. Fiz. Nauk 185 1337 (2015) [Phys. Usp. 58 (12) (2015)]) on the inadequacy of the nonholonomic model when applied to the rolling of rigid bodies. The model of nonholonomic mechanics is discussed. Using recent results as examples, it is shown that the validity and potential of the nonholonomic model are not inferior to those of other dynamics and friction models.

Abstract
pdf (651.34 Kb)
This paper is concerned with the figures of equilibrium of a self-gravitating ideal fluid with a stratified density and a steady-state velocity field. As in the classical formulation of the problem, it is assumed that the figures, or their layers, uniformly rotate about an axis fixed in space. It is shown that the ellipsoid of revolution (spheroid) with confocal stratification, in which each layer rotates with a constant angular velocity, is at equilibrium. Expressions are obtained for the gravitational potential, change in the angular velocity and pressure, and the conclusion is drawn that the angular velocity on the outer surface is the same as that of the corresponding Maclaurin spheroid. We note that the solution found generalizes a previously known solution for piecewise constant density distribution. For comparison, we also present a solution, due to Chaplygin, for a homothetic density stratification. We conclude by considering a homogeneous spheroid in the space of constant positive curvature. We show that in this case the spheroid cannot rotate as a rigid body, since the angular velocity distribution of fluid particles depends on the distance to the symmetry axis.

Topological monodromy as an obstruction to Hamiltonization of nonholonomic systems: Pro or contra?

Abstract
pdf (754.64 Kb)
The phenomenon of a topological monodromy in integrable Hamiltonian and nonholonomic systems is discussed. An efficient method for computing and visualizing the monodromy is developed. The comparative analysis of the topological monodromy is given for the rolling ellipsoid of revolution problem in two cases, namely, on a smooth and on a rough plane. The first of these systems is Hamiltonian, the second is nonholonomic. We show that, from the viewpoint of monodromy, there is no difference between the two systems, and thus disprove the conjecture by Cushman and Duistermaat stating that the topological monodromy gives a topological obstruction for Hamiltonization of the rolling ellipsoid of revolution on a rough plane.

Rational integrals of quasi-homogeneous dynamical systems
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, 2015, vol. 79, no. 3, pp. 209–216
Abstract
Dynamical systems, described by quasi-homogeneous systems of differential equations with polynomial right-hand sides, are considered. The Euler–Poisson equations from solid-state dynamics, as well as the Euler–Poincaré equations in Lie algebras, which describe the dynamics of systems in Lie groups with a left-invariant kinetic energy, can be pointed out as examples. The conditions for the existence of rational first integrals of quasi-homogeneous systems are found. They include the conditions for the existence of invariant algebraic manifolds. Examples of systems with rational integrals which do not admit of first integrals that are polynomial with respect to the momenta are presented. Results of a general nature are also demonstrated in the example of a Hess–Appel’rot invariant manifold from the dynamics of an asymmetric heavy top.

Abstract

Dynamical systems on network with discrete set of states and discrete time are considered. Sites, channels and particles are forming an abstract model of mass transport, information and so on, on the one hand, and another, they are forming dynamical system of deterministic or stochastic type. State of the system in the following discrete instant of time $S(T+1)$ is defined by transformation of the state at the moment $S(T)$ with given rules $L$, $S(T+1)=L(S(T))$. In this case, $S(T+1)$ does not necessarily belong to the admissible states set $A$. Then "judicial system" is activated, i.e. operator $P$ such that projects $S(T+1)$ to $A$. Thus, $S(T+1)=\{L(S(T))$, if $L(S(T))$ belongs $A$; $PL(S(T))$, if $L(S(T))$ does not belong $A\}$. Properties of these systems are researched, and applications for transport problems are discussed.

Abstract
pdf (395.52 Kb)
This paper presents an experimental investigation of the influence of rolling friction on the dynamics of a robot wheel. The robot is set in motion by changing the proper gyrostatic momentum using the controlled rotation of a rotor installed in the robot. The problem is considered under the assumption that the center of mass of the system does not coincide with its geometric center. In this paper we derive equations describing the dynamics of the system and give an example of the controlled motion of a wheel by specifying a constant angular acceleration of the rotor. A description of the design of the robot wheel is given and a method for experimentally determining the rolling friction coefficient is proposed. For the verification of the proposed mathematical model, experimental studies of the controlled motion of the robot wheel are carried out. We show that the theoretical results qualitatively agree with the experimental ones, but are quantitatively different.

Abstract
pdf (1.88 Mb)
This paper is concerned with the experimental determination of the added masses of bodies completely or partially immersed in a fluid. The paper presents an experimental setup, a technique of the experiment and an underlying mathematical model. The method of determining the added masses is based on the towing of the body with a given propelling force. It is known (from theory) that the concept of an added mass arises under the assumption concerning the potentiality of flow over the body. In this context, the authors have performed PIV visualization of flows generated by the towed body, and defined a part of the trajectory for which the flow can be considered as potential. For verification of the technique, a number of experiments have been performed to determine the added masses of a spheroid. The measurement results are in agreement with the known reference data. The added masses of a screwless freeboard robot have been defined using the developed technique.

Abstract
pdf (4.06 Mb)
The paper is devoted to the experimental verification of the Andersen–Pesavento–Wang model describing the falling of a heavy plate through a resisting medium. As a main research method the authors have used video filming of a falling plate with PIV measurement of the velocity of surrounding fluid flows. The trajectories of plates and streamlines were determined and oscillation frequencies were estimated using experimental results. A number of experiments for plates of various densities and sizes were performed. The trajectories of plates made of plastic are qualitatively similar to the trajectories predicted by the Andersen–Pesavento–Wang model. However, measured and computed frequencies of oscillations differ significantly. For a plate made of high carbon steel the results of experiments are quantitatively and qualitatively in disagreement with computational results.

Bulletin of Udmurt University. Mathematics. Mechanics. Computer Science, 2015, vol. 25, no. 4, pp. 544-553
Abstract
pdf (308.24 Kb)
The paper is devoted to the development of a model of an underwater robot actuated by inner rotors. This design has no moving elements interacting with an environment, which minimizes a negative impact on it, and increases noiselessness of the robot motion in a liquid. Despite numerous discussions on the possibility and efficiency of motion by means of internal masses' movement, a large number of works published in recent years confirms a relevance of the research. The paper presents an overview of works aimed at studying the motion by moving internal masses. A design of a screwless underwater robot that moves by the rotation of inner rotors to conduct theoretical and experimental investigations is proposed. In the context of theoretical research a robot model is considered as a hollow ellipsoid with three rotors located inside so that the axes of their rotation are mutually orthogonal. For the proposed model of a screwless underwater robot equations of motion in the form of classical Kirchhoff equations are obtained.

In addition, the motion of a wheeled vehicle on a plane in the case of two free wheel pairs is considered.

Abstract
pdf (265.93 Kb)
In this paper, we develop the results obtained by J.Hadamard and G.Hamel concerning the possibility of substituting nonholonomic constraints into the Lagrangian of the system without changing the form of the equations of motion. We formulate the conditions for correctness of such a substitution for a particular case of nonholonomic systems in the simplest and universal form. These conditions are presented in terms of both generalized velocities and quasi-velocities. We also discuss the derivation and reduction of the equations of motion of an arbitrary wheeled vehicle. In particular, we prove the equivalence (up to additional quadratures) of problems of an arbitrary wheeled vehicle and an analogous vehicle whose wheels have been replaced with skates. As examples, we consider the problems of a one-wheeled vehicle and a wheeled vehicle with two rotating wheel pairs.

Spherical Robot of Combined Type: Dynamics and Control

Abstract
pdf (306.92 Kb)
This paper is concerned with free and controlled motions of a spherical robot of combined type moving by displacing the center of mass and by changing the internal gyrostatic momentum. Equations of motion for the nonholonomic model are obtained and their first integrals are found. Fixed points of the reduced system are found in the absence of control actions. It is shown that they correspond to the motion of the spherical robot in a straight line and in a circle. A control algorithm for the motion of the spherical robot along an arbitrary trajectory is presented. A set of elementary maneuvers (gaits) is obtained which allow one to transfer the spherical robot from any initial point to any end point.

Hyperbolic Chaos in Self-oscillating Systems Based on Mechanical Triple Linkage: Testing Absence of Tangencies of Stable and Unstable Manifolds for Phase Trajectories

Abstract
pdf (3.15 Mb)
Dynamical equations are formulated and a numerical study is provided for selfoscillatory model systems based on the triple linkage hinge mechanism of Thurston – Weeks – Hunt – MacKay. We consider systems with a holonomic mechanical constraint of three rotators as well as systems, where three rotators interact by potential forces. We present and discuss some quantitative characteristics of the chaotic regimes (Lyapunov exponents, power spectrum). Chaotic dynamics of the models we consider are associated with hyperbolic attractors, at least, at relatively small supercriticality of the self-oscillating modes; that follows from numerical analysis of the distribution for angles of intersection of stable and unstable manifolds of phase trajectories on the attractors. In systems based on rotators with interacting potential the hyperbolicity is violated starting from a certain level of excitation.

Abstract
pdf (640.12 Kb)
In this paper, we present some results on chaotic dynamics in the Suslov problem which describe the motion of a heavy rigid body with a fixed point, subject to a nonholonomic constraint, which is expressed by the condition that the projection of angular velocity onto the body-fixed axis is equal to zero. Depending on the system parameters, we find cases of regular (in particular, integrable) behavior and detect various attracting sets (including strange attractors) that are typical of dissipative systems. We construct a chart of regimes with regions characterizing chaotic and regular regimes depending on the degree of conservativeness. We examine in detail the effect of reversal, which was observed previously in the motion of rattlebacks.

Experimental Investigation of the Motion of a Body with an Axisymmetric Base Sliding on a Rough Plane

Abstract
pdf (516.92 Kb)
In this paper we investigate the dynamics of a body with a flat base (cylinder) sliding on a horizontal rough plane. For analysis we use two approaches. In one of the approaches using a friction machine we determine the dependence of friction force on the velocity of motion of cylinders. In the other approach using a high-speed camera for video filming and the method of presentation of trajectories on a phase plane for analysis of results, we investigate the qualitative and quantitative behavior of the motion of cylinders on a horizontal plane. We compare the results obtained with theoretical and experimental results found earlier. In addition, we give a systematic review of the well-known experimental and theoretical results in this area.

Abstract
pdf (861.95 Kb)
This paper addresses the dynamics of systems with servoconstraints where the constraints are realized by controlling the inertial properties of the system. Vakonomic systems are a particular case. Special attention is given to the motion on Lie groups with left-invariant kinetic energy and a left-invariant constraint. The presence of symmetries allows the dynamical equations to be reduced to a closed system of differential equations with quadratic right-hand sides. As the main example, we consider the rotation of a rigid body with a left-invariant servoconstraint, which implies that the projection of the body’s angular velocity on some body-fixed direction is zero.

The paper discusses the dynamics of systems with Béghin’s servoconstraints where the constraints are realized by means of controlled forces. Classical nonholonomic systems are an important particular case. Special attention is given to the study of motion on Lie groups with left-invariant kinetic energy and left-invariant constraints. The presence of symmetries allows one to reduce the dynamic equations to a closed system of differential equations with quadratic right-hand sides on a Lie algebra. Examples are given which include the rotation of a rigid body with a left-invariant servoconstraint — the projection of the angular velocity onto some direction fixed in the body is equal to zero (a generalization of the nonholonomic Suslov problem) — and the motion of the Chaplygin sleigh with servoconstraints of a certain type. The dynamics of systems with Béghin’s servoconstraints is richer and more varied than the more usual dynamics of nonholonomic systems.

Abstract
pdf (1.5 Mb)
Results are reviewed concerning the planar problem of a plate falling in a resisting medium studied with models based on ordinary differential equations for a small number of dynamical variables. A unified model is introduced to conduct a comparative analysis of the dynamical behaviors of models of Kozlov, Tanabe–Kaneko, Belmonte–Eisenberg–Moses and Andersen–Pesavento–Wang using common dimensionless variables and parameters. It is shown that the overall structure of the parameter spaces for the different models manifests certain similarities caused by the same inherent symmetry and by the universal nature of the phenomena involved in nonlinear dynamics (fixed points, limit cycles, attractors, and bifurcations).

This paper deals with the problem of a spherical robot propelled by an internal omniwheel platform and rolling without slipping on a plane. The problem of control of spherical robot motion along an arbitrary trajectory is solved within the framework of a kinematic model and a dynamic model. A number of particular cases of motion are identified, and their stability is investigated. An algorithm for constructing elementary maneuvers (gaits) providing the transition from one steady-state motion to another is presented for the dynamic model. A number of experiments have been carried out confirming the adequacy of the proposed kinematic model.

This paper develops topological methods for qualitative analysis of the behavior of nonholonomic dynamical systems. Their application is illustrated by considering a new integrable system of nonholonomic mechanics, called a nonholonomic hinge. Although this system is nonholonomic, it can be represented in Hamiltonian form with a Lie –Poisson bracket of rank 2. This Lie – Poisson bracket is used to perform stability analysis of fixed points. In addition, all possible types of integral manifolds are found and a classification of trajectories on them is presented.

It is well known that in the Béghin– Appel theory servo-constraints are realized using controlled external forces. In this paper an expansion of the Béghin–Appel theory is given in the case where
servo-constraints are realized using controlled change of the inertial properties of a dynamical system. The analytical mechanics of dynamical systems with servo-constraints of general form is discussed. The key principle of the approach developed is to appropriately determine virtual displacements of systems with constraints.

Results are reviewed relating to the planar problem for the falling card in a resisting medium based on models represented by ordinary differential equations for a small number of variables. We introduce a unified model, which gives an opportunity to conduct a comparative analysis of dynamic behaviors of models of Kozlov, Tanabe – Kaneko, Belmonte – Eisenberg – Moses and Andersen – Pesavento – Wang using common dimensionless variables and parameters. It is shown that the overall structure of the parameter spaces for the different models shows certain similarities caused obviously by the same inherent symmetry and by universal nature of the involved phenomena of nonlinear dynamics (fixed points, limit cycles, attractors, bifurcations). In concern of motion of a body of elliptical profile in a viscous medium with imposed circulation of the velocity vector and with the applied constant torque, a presence of the Lorenz-type strange attractor is discovered in the three-dimensional space of generalized velocities.

Abstract

In this paper, we develop the method of Chaplygin’s reducing multiplier; using this method, we obtain a conformally Hamiltonian representation for three nonholonomic systems, namely, for the nonholonomic oscillator, for the Heisenberg system, and for the Chaplygin sleigh. Furthermore, in the case of oscillator and nonholonomic Chaplygin sleigh, we show that the problem reduces to the study of motion of a mass point (in a potential field) on a plane and, in the case of Heisenberg system, on the sphere. Moreover, we consider an example of a nonholonomic system (suggested by Blackall) to which one cannot apply the method of reducing multiplier.

This paper investigates the possibility of the motion control of a ball with a pendulum mechanism with non-holonomic constraints using gaits — the simplest motions such as acceleration and deceleration during the motion in a straight line, rotation through a given angle and their combination. Also, the controlled motion of the system along a straight line with a constant acceleration is considered. For this problem the algorithm for calculating the control torques is given and it is shown that the resulting reduced system has the first integral of motion.

A dynamical communication system on a network
Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics, 2015, vol. 275, pp. 247–261
Abstract
A dynamical system is introduced and investigated. The system contains N vertices. The vertices send messages at discrete time instants according to a given rule. A conflict of two vertices takes place if the vertices try to send messages to each other at the same instant. Each vertex sends a message to another vertex at every step if no conflict takes place. In case of a conflict, only one of the two competing vertices sends a message. Deterministic and stochastic conflict resolution rules are considered. We investigate the average number of messages sent by a vertex per a time unit, called the productivity of this vertex, the total productivity of the system and other characteristics. The productivity of vertices depends on the initial state of the system, and the criterion of efficiency is the expected average productivity of vertices provided all possible initial states of the system are equiprobable. An ergodic version of the system is also considered in which any particle moves with approximately equal to 1 probability provided there is no conflict.

Abstract
Stochastic and deterministic versions of a discrete dynamical system on a necklace network are investigated. This network contains several contours. There are three cells and a particle on each contour. The particle occupies one of the cells and, at each step, it makes an attempt to move to the next cell in the direction of movement. As well as on neighboring contours the particles move in accordance with rules of stochastic or deterministic type. We prove that the behavior of the model with a rule of the first type is stochastic only at the beginning, and after a time interval the behavior becomes purely deterministic. The system with a rule of the first type reaches a stationary mode which depends on the initial state. The average velocity of particles and other characteristics of the dynamical systems are studied.

Monotonic walks on a necklace and a coloured dynamic vector
International Journal of Computer Mathematics, 2015, vol. 92, no. 9, pp. 1910–1920
Abstract
Stochastic and deterministic versions of a discrete dynamical system on a necklace are investigated. This network consists of a sequence of contours NSWE with nodes, i.e. the nodes are common points at W and E. There are two cells and a particle on each contour. Each time instance, the particle occupies a cell and, at every time unit, comes to the next cell in the same direction. The particles of the neighbouring contours move in accordance with rules of stochastic or deterministic type. The behaviour of the model with the rule of the first type is stochastic only at the beginning and after a time interval becomes a pure deterministic system. The system with the second rule comes to a steady mode, which depends on the initial state. The average velocity of particles and characteristics of the system are studied.

Coarsening in ergodic theory
Russian Journal of Mathematical Physics, 2015, vol. 22, no. 2, pp. 184–187
Abstract
This paper deals with the coarsening operation in dynamical systems where the phase space with a finite invariant measure is partitioned into measurable pieces and the summable function transferred by the phase flow is averaged over these pieces at each instant of time. Letting the time tend to infinity and then refining the partition, we arrive at a modernization of the von Neumann ergodic theorem, which is useful for the purposes of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. In particular, for fine-grained partitions, we obtain the law of increment of coarse entropy for systems approaching the state of statistical equilibrium.

Nonlinear dynamics of the rattleback: a nonholonomic model
Physics-Uspekhi, 2014, vol. 184, no. 5, pp. 453-460
Abstract
pdf (750.09 Kb)
For a solid body of convex form moving on a rough horizontal plane that is known as a rattleback, numerical simulations are used to discuss and illustrate dynamical phenomena that are characteristic of the motion due to a nonholonomic nature of the mechanical system; the relevant feature is the nonconservation of the phase volume in the course of the dynamics. In such a system, a local compression of the phase volume can produce behavior features similar to those exhibited by dissipative systems, such as stable equilibrium points corresponding to stationary rotations; limit cycles (rotations with oscillations); and strange attractors. A chart of dynamical regimes is plotted in a plane whose axes are the total mechanical energy and the relative angle between the geometric and dynamic principal axes of the body. The transition to chaos through a sequence of Feigenbaum period doubling bifurcations is demonstrated. A number of strange attractors are considered, for which phase portraits, Lyapunov exponents, and Fourier spectra are presented.

On the Nonlinear Poisson Bracket Arising in Nonholonomic Mechanics

Abstract
pdf (509.63 Kb)
Nonholonomic systems describing the rolling of a rigid body on a plane and their relationship with various Poisson structures are considered. The notion of generalized conformally Hamiltonian representation of dynamical systems is introduced. In contrast to linear Poisson structures defined by Lie algebras and used in rigid-body dynamics, the Poisson structures of nonholonomic systems turn out to be nonlinear. They are also degenerate and the Casimir functions for them can be expressed in terms of complicated transcendental functions or not appear at all.

Liouville's equation as a Schrödinger equation
Izvestiya: Mathematics, 2014, vol. 78, no. 4, pp. 744–757
Abstract
We show that every non-negative solution of Liouville's equation for an
arbitrary (possibly non-Hamiltonian) dynamical system admits a factorization
$\psi\psi^*$, where $\psi$ satisfies a Schrödinger equation of special
form. The corresponding quantum system is obtained by Weyl quantization
of a Hamiltonian system whose Hamiltonian is linear in the momenta.
We discuss the structure of the spectrum of the special Schrödinger
equation on a multidimensional torus and show that the eigenfunctions may
have finite smoothness in the analytic case. Our generalized solutions
of the Schrödinger equation are natural examples of non-selfadjoint
extensions of Hermitian differential operators. We give conditions for
the existence of a smooth invariant measure of a dynamical system. They
are expressed in terms of stability conditions for the conjugate
equations of variations.

Abstract
pdf (917.58 Kb)
This is a survey of basic facts presently known about non-linear Poisson structures in the analysis of integrable systems in non-holonomic mechanics. It is shown that by using the theory of Poisson deformations it is possible to reduce various non-holonomic systems to dynamical systems on well-understood phase spaces equipped with linear Lie-Poisson brackets. As a result, not only can different non-holonomic systems be compared, but also fairly advanced methods of Poisson geometry and topology can be used for investigating them.

Abstract

This paper reviews the results of stability analysis for polygonal configurations of a point vortex system in an annular region depending on the ratio of the inner and outer radii of the annulus. Conditions are found for linear stability of Thomsonʼs configurations for the case $N<7$. The paper also shows that a system of two vortices between parallel walls is a limiting case of a two-vortex system in an annular region, as the radii of the annulus tend to infinity.

The Reversal and Chaotic Attractor in the Nonholonomic Model of Chaplygin’s Top
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2014, vol. 19, no. 6, pp. 718-733
Abstract
pdf (1.29 Mb)
In this paper we consider the motion of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball on a plane in a gravitational field. The point of contact of the ball with the plane is subject to a nonholonomic constraint which forbids slipping. The motion of the ball is governed by the nonholonomic reversible system of 6 differential equations. In the case of arbitrary displacement of the center of mass of the ball the system under consideration is a nonintegrable system without an invariant measure. Using qualitative and quantitative analysis we show that the unbalanced ball exhibits reversal (the phenomenon of reversal of the direction of rotation) for some parameter values. Moreover, by constructing charts of Lyaponov exponents we find a few types of strange attractors in the system, including the so-called figure-eight attractor which belongs to the genuine strange attractors of pseudohyperbolic type.

Abstract
pdf (965.59 Kb)
In this paper we investigate the dynamics of a body with a flat base sliding on a horizontal and inclined rough plane under the assumption of linear pressure distribution of the body on the plane as the simplest dynamically consistent friction model. For analysis we use the descriptive function method similar to the methods used in the problems of Hamiltonian dynamics with one degree of freedom and allowing a qualitative analysis of the system to be made without explicit integration of equations of motion. In addition, we give a systematic review of the well-known experimental and theoretical results in this area.

In this paper we consider superintegrable systems which are an immediate generalization of the Kepler and Hook problems, both in two-dimensional spaces — the plane $\mathbb{R}^2$ and the sphere $S^2$ — and in three-dimensional spaces $\mathbb{R}^3$ and $S^3$. Using the central projection and the reduction procedure proposed in [21], we show an interrelation between the superintegrable systems found previously and show new ones. In all cases the superintegrals are presented in explicit form.

The Dynamics of Nonholonomic Systems Consisting of a Spherical Shell with a Moving Rigid Body Inside

Abstract
pdf (241.48 Kb)
In this paper we investigate two systems consisting of a spherical shell rolling without slipping on a plane and a moving rigid body fixed inside the shell by means of two different mechanisms. In the former case the rigid body is attached to the center of the ball on a spherical hinge. We show an isomorphism between the equations of motion for the inner body with those for the ball moving on a smooth plane. In the latter case the rigid body is fixed by means of a nonholonomic hinge. Equations of motion for this system have been obtained and new integrable cases found. A special feature of the set of tensor invariants of this system is that it leads to the Euler–Jacobi–Lie theorem, which is a new integration mechanism in nonholonomic mechanics. We also consider the problem of free motion of a bundle of two bodies connected by means of a nonholonomic hinge. For this system, integrable cases and various tensor invariants are found.

Abstract
pdf (186.79 Kb)
The problem of integrability conditions for systems of differential equations is discussed. Darboux’s classical results on the integrability of linear non-autonomous systems with an incomplete set of particular solutions are generalized. Special attention is paid to linear Hamiltonian systems. The paper discusses the general problem of integrability of the systems of autonomous differential equations in an n-dimensional space, which admit the algebra of symmetry fields of dimension $\geqslant n$. Using a method due to Liouville, this problem is reduced to investigating the integrability conditions for Hamiltonian systems with Hamiltonians linear in the momenta in phase space of dimension that is twice as large. In conclusion, the integrability of an autonomous system in three-dimensional space with two independent non-trivial symmetry fields is proved. It should be emphasized that no additional conditions are imposed on these fields.

Abstract

In this paper we consider the dynamics of a rigid body with a sharp edge in contact with a rough plane. The body can move so that its contact point is fixed or slips or loses contact with the support. In this paper, the dynamics of the system is considered within three mechanical models which describe different regimes of motion. The boundaries of the domain of definition of each model are given, the possibility of transitions from one regime to another and their consistency with different coefficients of friction on the horizontal and inclined surfaces are discussed.

The life and career of the great French mathematician and politician Paul Painlevé is described. His contribution to the analytical theory of nonlinear differential equations was significant. The paper outlines the achievements of Paul Painlevé and his students in the investigation of an interesting class of nonlinear second-order equations and new equations defining a completely new class of special functions, now called the Painlevé transcendents. The contribution of Paul Painlevé to the study of algebraic nonintegrability of the $N$-body problem, his remarkable observations in mechanics, in particular, paradoxes arising in the dynamics of systems with friction, his attempt to create the axiomatics of mechanics and his contribution to gravitation theory are discussed.

Abstract
pdf (1.3 Mb)
We study both analytically and numerically the dynamics of an inhomogeneous ball on a rough horizontal plane under the infuence of gravity. A nonholonomic constraint of zero velocity at the point of contact of the ball with the plane is imposed. In the case of an arbitrary displacement of the center of mass of the ball, the system is nonintegrable without the property of phase volume conservation. We show that at certain parameter values the unbalanced ball exhibits the effect of reversal (the direction of the ball rotation reverses). Charts of dynamical regimes on the parameter plane are presented. The system under consideration exhibits diverse chaotic dynamics, in particular, the figure-eight chaotic attractor, which is a special type of pseudohyperbolic chaos.

Figures of equilibrium of an inhomogeneous self-gravitating fluid

Abstract
pdf (492.78 Kb)
This paper is concerned with the figures of equilibrium of a self-gravitating ideal fluid with density stratification and a steady-state velocity field. As in the classical setting, it is assumed that the figure or its layers uniformly rotate about an axis fixed in space. As is well known, when there is no rotation, only a ball can be a figure of equilibrium.
It is shown that the ellipsoid of revolution (spheroid) with confocal stratification, in which each layer rotates with inherent constant angular velocity, is at equilibrium. Expressions are obtained for the gravitational potential, change in the angular velocity and pressure, and the conclusion is drawn that the angular velocity on the outer surface is the same as that of the Maclaurin spheroid. We note that the solution found generalizes a previously known solution for piecewise constant density distribution. For comparison, we also present a solution, due to Chaplygin, for a homothetic density stratification.
We conclude by considering a homogeneous spheroid in the space of constant positive curvature. We show that in this case the spheroid cannot rotate as a rigid body, since the angular velocity distribution of fluid particles depends on the distance to the symmetry axis.

Abstract
pdf (746.69 Kb)
We consider the problem of motion of axisymmetric vortex rings in an ideal incompressible and viscous fluid. Using the numerical simulation of the Navier–Stokes equations, we confirm the existence of leapfrogging of three equal vortex rings and suggest the possibility of detecting it experimentally. We also confirm the existence of leapfrogging of two vortex rings with opposite-signed vorticities in a viscous fluid.

Conservation laws of generalized billiards that are polynomial in momenta
Russian Journal of Mathematical Physics, 2014, vol. 21, no. 2, pp. 226–241
Abstract
This paper deals with dynamics particles moving on a Euclidean n-dimensional torus or in an n-dimensional parallelepiped box in a force field whose potential is proportional to the characteristic function of the region D with a regular boundary. After reaching this region, the trajectory of the particle is refracted according to the law which resembles the Snell -Descartes law from geometrical optics. When the energies are small, the particle does not reach the region D and elastically bounces off its boundary. In this case, we obtain a dynamical system of billiard type (which was intensely studied with respect to strictly convex regions). In addition, the paper discusses the problem of the existence of nontrivial first integrals that are polynomials in momenta with summable coefficients and are functionally independent with the energy integral. Conditions for the geometry of the boundary of the region D under which the problem does not admit nontrivial polynomial first integrals are found. Examples of nonconvex regions are given; for these regions the corresponding dynamical system is obviously nonergodic for fixed energy values (including small ones), however, it does not admit polynomial conservation laws independent of the energy integral.

Behavior of pendulums on a regular polygon
Journal of Communication and Computer, 2014, vol. 11, no. 1, pp. 30–38
Abstract
pdf (294.98 Kb)
Stochastic and deterministic versions of a discrete dynamical network system are investigated. This network consists of a sequence of contours NSWE with nodes, which are common points at N, W, S and E. There are four cells and a particle on each contour. At each time instance, the particle occupies a cell, and attempts to occupy the next cell in the same direction. Particles of neighboring contours move in accordance with some rules. Both deterministic and stochastic rules are considered. The behavior of the model with the first rule is stochastic only at the beginning, and after a time interval the system becomes to pure deterministic. The system with the second rule comes to a steady state, which depends on the initial state. The average velocity of particles and other characteristics of the system are studied.

Abstract
pdf (580.72 Kb)
In the paper the qualitative properties solutions of the system nonlinear equations, describing one-way movement of particles chain on a line with follower velocity defined by some function of distance from the leader, are researched. In the case when the given function is the velocity of the first particle (leader) in the chain, the model is called a model of leader. If the given function is the velocity of the last particle (outsider), the model is called a model of “shepherd”.
The sufficient conditions for the existence of the chain with the given constraints on the velocity and acceleration are obtained.

A general theorem on the behaviour of the angular variables of integrable dynamical systems as functions of time is established. Problems on the motion of the nodal line of a Kovalevskaya top and of a three-dimensional rigid body in a fluid are considered in integrable cases as examples. This range of topics is discussed for systems of a more general form obtained from completely integrable systems after changing the time.

We discuss an embedding of a vector field for the nonholonomic Routh sphere into a subgroup of commuting Hamiltonian vector fields on six-dimensional phase space. The corresponding Poisson brackets are reduced to the canonical Poisson brackets on the Lie algebra $e^*$(3). It allows us to relate the nonholonomic Routh system with the Hamiltonian system on a cotangent bundle to the sphere with a canonical Poisson structure.

Abstract
pdf (449.44 Kb)
Monotonic (particles move in the same direction) and total-connected (particles that occupy neighboring cells move synchronized) random ($p<1$) and deterministic ($p=1$) walks on closed networks, which consist of circles, are considered. An algorithm has been developed that allows to calculate the duration of the time interval after that all the particles will be contained in the unique cluster. It is proved that such the interval is finite in the considered model. Some statements are proved that allow to found the velocity of movement if deterministic movement occurs on the follows structures: two rings (two closed sequences of cells) that have a common cell; a closed sequence of rings each of that has two common cells with two the neighboring rings; a two-dimensional network structure in that each cell has common cells with four the neighboring rings; a similar infinite network.

Abstract
pdf (702.93 Kb)
We investigate the motion of the point of contact (absolute dynamics) in the integrable problem of the Chaplygin ball rolling on a plane. Although the velocity of the point of contact is a given vector function of variables of the reduced system, it is impossible to apply standard methods of the theory of integrable Hamiltonian systems due to the absence of an appropriate conformally Hamiltonian representation for an unreduced system. For a complete analysis we apply the standard analytical approach, due to Bohl and Weyl, and develop topological methods of investigation. In this way we obtain conditions for boundedness and unboundedness of the trajectories of the contact point.

Abstract
pdf (488.37 Kb)
A new integrable system describing the rolling of a rigid body with a spherical cavity on a spherical base is considered. Previously the authors found the separation of variables for this system on the zero level set of a linear (in angular velocity) first integral, whereas in the general case it is not possible to separate the variables. In this paper we show that the foliation into invariant tori in this problem is equivalent to the corresponding foliation in the Clebsch integrable system in rigid body dynamics (for which no real separation of variables has been found either). In particular, a fixed point of focus type is possible for this system, which can serve as a topological obstacle to the real separation of variables.

Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the dynamics of systems describing the rolling without slipping and spinning (rubber rolling) of various rigid bodies on a plane and a sphere. It is shown that a hierarchy of possible types of dynamical behavior arises depending on the body’s surface geometry and mass distribution. New integrable cases and cases of existence of an invariant measure are found. In addition, these systems are used to illustrate that the existence of several nontrivial involutions in reversible dissipative systems leads to quasi-Hamiltonian behavior.

Abstract
pdf (1.71 Mb)
An investigation of the characteristics of motion of a rigid body with variable internal mass distribution in a viscous fluid is carried out on the basis of a joint numerical solution of the Navier–Stokes equations and equations of motion for a rigid body. A nonstationary three-dimensional solution to the problem is found. The motion of a sphere and a drop-shaped body in a viscous fluid in a gravitational field, which is caused by the motion of internal material points, is explored. The possibility of self-propulsion of a body in an arbitrary given direction is shown.

Abstract

We consider the problem of motion of axisymmetric vortex rings in an ideal incompressible fluid. Using the topological approach, we present a method for complete qualitative analysis of the dynamics of a system of two vortex rings. In particular, we completely solve the problem of describing the conditions for the onset of leapfrogging motion of vortex rings. In addition, for the system of two vortex rings we find new families of motions where the relative distances remain finite (we call them pseudo-leapfrogging). We also find solutions for the problem of three vortex rings, which describe both the regular and chaotic leapfrogging motion of vortex rings.

Abstract

In this paper we consider the dynamics of rigid body whose sharp edge is in contact with a rough plane. The body can move so that its contact point does not move or slips or loses touch with the support. In this paper, the dynamics of the system is considered within three mechanical models that describe different modes of motion. The boundaries of definition range of each model are given, the possibility of transitions from one mode to another and their consistency with different coefficients of friction on the horizontal and inclined surfaces is discussed.

Abstract
pdf (441.83 Kb)
In this paper we investigate two systems consisting of a spherical shell rolling on a plane without slipping and a moving rigid body fixed inside the shell by means of two different mechanisms. In the former case the rigid body is fixed at the center of the ball on a spherical hinge. We show an isomorphism between the equations of motion for the inner body with those for the ball moving on a smooth plane. In the latter case the rigid body is fixed by means of the nonholonomic hinge. The equations of motion for this system have been obtained and new integrable cases found. A special feature of the set of tensor invariants of this system is that it leads to the Euler–Jacobi–Lie theorem, which is a new integration mechanism in nonholonomic mechanics.

In this paper we investigate the dynamics of a body with a flat base sliding on a horizontal plane under the assumption of linear pressure distribution of the body on the plane as the simplest dynamically consistent friction model.
For analysis we use the descriptive function method similar to the methods used in the problems of Hamiltonian dynamics with one degree of freedom and allowing a qualitative analysis of the system to be made without explicit integration of equations of motion. In addition, we give a systematic review of the well-known experimental and theoretical results in this area.

This paper investigates the possibility of the motion control of a ball with a pendulum mechanism with non-holonomic constraints using gaits — the simplest motions such as acceleration and deceleration during the motion in a straight line, rotation through a given angle and their combination. Also, the controlled motion of the system along a straight line with a constant acceleration is considered. For this problem the algorithm for calculating the control torques is given and it is shown that the resulting reduced system has the first integral of motion.

Abstract

The problem of integrability conditions for systems of differential equations is discussed. Darboux’s classical results on the integrability of linear non-autonomous systems with an incomplete set of particular solutions are generalized. Special attention is paid to linear Hamiltonian systems. The paper discusses the general problem of integrability of the systems of autonomous differential equations in an $n$-dimensional space which permit the algebra of symmetry fields of dimension $\geqslant n$. Using a method due to Liouville, this problem is reduced to investigating the integrability conditions for Hamiltonian systems with Hamiltonians linear in the momentums in phase space of dimension that is twice as large. In conclusion, the integrability of an autonomous system in three-dimensional space with two independent non-trivial symmetry fields is proved. It should be emphasized that no additional conditions are imposed on these fields.

Abstract
pdf (890.26 Kb)
The phenomenon of a topological monodromy in integrable Hamiltonian and nonholonomic systems is discussed. An efficient method for computing and visualizing the monodromy is developed. The comparative analysis of the topological monodromy is given for the rolling ellipsoid of revolution problem in two cases, namely, on a smooth and on a rough plane. The first of these systems is Hamiltonian, the second is nonholonomic. We show that, from the viewpoint of monodromy, there is no difference between the two systems, and thus disprove the conjecture by Cushman and Duistermaat stating that the topological monodromy gives a topological obstruction for Hamiltonization of the rolling ellipsoid of revolution on a rough plane.

Abstract

We consider the optimal motion control problem for a mobile device with an external rigid shell moving along a prescribed trajectory in a viscous fluid. The mobile robot under consideration possesses the property of self-locomotion. Self-locomotion is implemented due to back-and-forth motion of an internal material point. The optimal motion control is based on the Sugeno fuzzy inference system. An approach based on constructing decision trees using the genetic algorithm for structural and parametric synthesis has been proposed to obtain the base of fuzzy rules.

Rolling of a Rigid Body Without Slipping and Spinning: Kinematics and Dynamics
Journal of Applied Nonlinear Dynamics, 2013, vol. 2, no. 2, pp. 161-173
Abstract
pdf (269.77 Kb)
In this paper we investigate various kinematic properties of rolling of one rigid body on another both for the classical model of rolling without slipping (the velocities of bodies at the point of contact coincide) and for the model of rubber-rolling (with the additional condition that the spinning of the bodies relative to each other be excluded). Furthermore, in the case where both bodies are bounded by spherical surfaces and one of them is fixed, the equations of motion for a moving ball are represented in the form of the Chaplygin system. When the center of mass of the moving ball coincides with its geometric center, the equations of motion are represented in conformally Hamiltonian form, and in the case where the radii of the moving and fixed spheres coincides, they are written in Hamiltonian form.

Polynomial in momenta invariants of Hamilton's equations, divergent series and generalized functions
Nonlinearity, 2013, vol. 26, no. 3, pp. 745–756
Abstract
We consider the problem of the motion of two identical interacting particles on a circle in a potential force field. We study conditions for the existence of an additional first integral in the form of a polynomial of degree 4 in momenta with periodic coefficients. These conditions are reduced to the solvability of a certain nonlinear functional-differential equation for the potential of the external force and the interaction potential. If the potentials are smooth, this equation has only trivial solutions: at least one of the potentials is a constant function. We classify generalized solutions of this equation when the interaction potential is a distribution while the external potential is a smooth function. Formal Fourier series for the interaction potential can be summed up by the (C, 2)-Cesaro method to periodic functions with singularities.

Abstract
pdf (519.88 Kb)
We consider problems related to the well-known conjecture on the degrees of irreducible polynomial integrals of a reversible Hamiltonian system with two degrees of freedom and toral position space. The main object of study is a special system arising in the analysis of irreducible polynomial integrals of degree 4. In a particular case we have the problem of the motion of two interacting particles on a circle in given potential fields. We prove that if the three potentials are smooth non-constant functions, then this problem has no non-trivial polynomial integrals of arbitrarily high degree. We prove the conjecture completely for systems with a polynomial first integral of degree 4 in the momenta.

Invariant manifolds of Hamilton's equations
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, 2012, vol. 76, no. 4, pp. 378–387
Abstract
pdf (254.88 Kb)
The invariance conditions of smooth manifolds of Hamilton's equations are represented in the form of multidimensional Lamb's equations from the dynamics of an ideal fluid. In the stationary case these conditions do not depend on the method used to parameterize the invariant manifold. One consequence of Lamb's equations is an equation of a vortex, which is invariant to replacements of the time-dependent variables. A proof of the periodicity conditions of solutions of autonomous Hamilton's equations with n degrees of freedom and compact energy manifolds that admit of 2n – 3 additional first integrals is given as an application of the theory developed.

The statistical mechanics of a class of dissipative systems
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, 2012, vol. 76, no. 1, pp. 15–24
Abstract
The statistical mechanics of dynamical systems on which only isotropic viscous friction forces act is developed. A non-stationary analogue of the Gibbs canonical distribution, which enables each such system to be made to correspond to a certain thermodynamic system that satisfies the first and second laws of thermodynamics, is introduced. The evolution of non-Gibbs probability distributions with time is also considered.

Rolling of a Ball without Spinning on a Plane: the Absence of an Invariant Measure in a System with a Complete Set of Integrals

Abstract
pdf (402.12 Kb)
In the paper we consider a system of a ball that rolls without slipping on a plane. The ball is assumed to be inhomogeneous and its center of mass does not necessarily coincide with its geometric center. We have proved that the governing equations can be recast into a system of six ODEs that admits four integrals of motion. Thus, the phase space of the system is foliated by invariant 2-tori; moreover, this foliation is equivalent to the Liouville foliation encountered in the case of Euler of the rigid body dynamics. However, the system cannot be solved in terms of quadratures because there is no invariant measure which we proved by finding limit cycles.

Dynamical Phenomena Occurring due to Phase Volume Compression in Nonholonomic Model of the Rattleback

Abstract
pdf (4.23 Mb)
We study numerically the dynamics of the rattleback, a rigid body with a convex surface on a rough horizontal plane, in dependence on the parameters, applying methods used earlier for treatment of dissipative dynamical systems, and adapted here for the nonholonomic model. Charts of dynamical regimes on the parameter plane of the total mechanical energy and the angle between the geometric and dynamic principal axes of the rigid body are presented. Characteristic structures in the parameter space, previously observed only for dissipative systems, are revealed. A method for calculating the full spectrum of Lyapunov exponents is developed and implemented. Analysis of the Lyapunov exponents of the nonholonomic model reveals two classes of chaotic regimes. For the model reduced to a 3D map, the first one corresponds to a strange attractor with one positive and two negative Lyapunov exponents, and the second to the chaotic dynamics of quasi-conservative type, when positive and negative Lyapunov exponents are close in magnitude, and the remaining exponent is close to zero. The transition to chaos through a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations relating to the Feigenbaum universality class is illustrated. Several examples of strange attractors are considered in detail. In particular, phase portraits as well as the Lyapunov exponents, the Fourier spectra, and fractal dimensions are presented.

Generalized Chaplygin’s Transformation and Explicit Integration of a System with a Spherical Support

Abstract
pdf (484.82 Kb)
We discuss explicit integration and bifurcation analysis of two non-holonomic problems. One of them is the Chaplygin’s problem on no-slip rolling of a balanced dynamically non-symmetric ball on a horizontal plane. The other, first posed by Yu.N.Fedorov, deals with the motion of a rigid body in a spherical support. For Chaplygin’s problem we consider in detail the transformation that Chaplygin used to integrate the equations when the constant of areas is zero. We revisit Chaplygin’s approach to clarify the geometry of this very important transformation, because in the original paper the transformation looks a cumbersome collection of highly non-transparent analytic manipulations. Understanding its geometry seriously facilitate the extension of the transformation to the case of a rigid body in a spherical support – the problem where almost no progress has been made since Yu.N. Fedorov posed it in 1988. In this paper we show that extending the transformation to the case of a spherical support allows us to integrate the equations of motion explicitly in terms of quadratures, detect mostly remarkable critical trajectories and study their stability, and perform an exhaustive qualitative analysis of motion. Some of the results may find their application in various technical devices and robot design. We also show that adding a gyrostat with constant angular momentum to the spherical-support system does not affect its integrability.

Abstract
pdf (239.09 Kb)
Invariant manifolds of equations governing the dynamics of conservative nonholonomic systems are investigated. These manifolds are assumed to be uniquely projected onto configuration space. The invariance conditions are represented in the form of generalized Lamb’s equations. Conditions are found under which the solutions to these equations admit a hydrodynamical description typical of Hamiltonian systems. As an illustration, nonholonomic systems on Lie groups with a left-invariant metric and left-invariant (right-invariant) constraints are considered.
Topological analysis of one integrable system related to the rolling of a ball over a sphere
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2012, vol. 8, no. 5, pp. 957-975
Abstract
pdf (796.84 Kb)
A new integrable system describing the rolling of a rigid body with a spherical cavity over a spherical base is considered. Previously the authors found the separation of variables for this system at the zero level of a linear (in angular velocity) first integral, whereas in the general case it is not possible to separate the variables. In this paper we show that the foliation into invariant tori in this problem is equivalent to the corresponding foliation in the Clebsch integrable system in rigid body dynamics (for which no real separation of variables has been found either). In particular, a fixed point of focus type is possible for this system, which can serve as a topological obstacle to the real separation of variables.

Abstract

An investigation of the characteristics of motion of a rigid body with variable internal mass distribution in a viscous fluid is carried out on the basis of a joint numerical solution of the Navier–Stokes equations and equations of motion. A non-stationary three-dimensional solution to the problem is found. The motion of a sphere and a drop-shaped body in a viscous fluid, which is caused by the motion of internal material points, in a gravitational field is explored. The possibility of motion of a body in an arbitrary given direction is shown.

Rolling of a rigid body without slipping and spinning: kinematics and dynamics
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2012, vol. 8, no. 4, pp. 783-797
Abstract
pdf (347.06 Kb)
In this paper we investigate various kinematic properties of rolling of one rigid body on another both for the classical model of rolling without slipping (the velocities of bodies at the point of contact coincide) and for the model of rubber-rolling (with the additional condition that the spinning of the bodies relative to each other be excluded). Furthermore, in the case where both bodies are bounded by spherical surfaces and one of them is fixed, the equations of motion for a moving ball are represented in the form of the Chaplygin system. When the center of mass of the moving ball coincides with its geometric center, the equations of motion are represented in conformally Hamiltonian form, and in the case where the radii of the moving and fixed spheres coincides, they are written in Hamiltonian form.

Abstract

The problem of a uniform straight cylinder (disc) sliding on a horizontal plane under the action of dry friction forces is considered. The contact patch between the cylinder and the plane coincides with the base of the cylinder. We consider axisymmetric discs, i.e. we assume that the base of the cylinder is symmetric with respect to the axis lying in the plane of the base. The focus is on the qualitative properties of the dynamics of discs whose circular base, triangular base and three points are in contact with a rough plane.

We consider the problem of the motion of axisymmetric vortex rings in an ideal incompressible fluid. Using the topological approach, we present a method for complete qualitative analysis of the dynamics of a system of two vortex rings. In particular, we completely solve the problem of describing the conditions for the onset of leapfrogging motion of vortex rings. In addition, for the system of two vortex rings we find new families of motions in which the mutual distances remain finite (we call them pseudo-leapfrogging). We also find solutions for the problem of three vortex rings, which describe both the regular and chaotic leapfrogging motion of vortex rings.

On detachment conditions of a top on an absolutely rough support
Bulletin of Udmurt University. Mathematics. Mechanics. Computer Science, 2012, no. 3, pp. 103-113
Abstract
pdf (292.26 Kb)
The classical problem about the motion of a heavy symmetric rigid body (top) with a fixed point on the horizontal plane is discussed. Due to the unilateral nature of the contact, detachments (jumps) are possible under certain conditions. We know two scenarios of detachment related to changing the sign of the normal reaction or the sign of the normal acceleration, and the mismatch of these conditions leads to a paradox. To determine the nature of paradoxes an example of the pendulum (rod) within the limitations of the real coefficient of friction was studied in detail. We showed that in the case of the first type of the paradox (detachment is impossible and contact is impossible) the body begins to slide on the support. In the case of the paradox of the second type (detachment is possible and contact is possible) contact is retained up to the sign change of the normal reaction, and then at the detachment the normal acceleration is non-zero.

Problem of stability of two-link trajectories in a multidimensional Birkhoff billiard
Proceedings of the Steklov Institute of Mathematics, 2011, vol. 273, pp. 196–213
Abstract
A linearized problem of stability of simple periodic motions with elastic reflections is considered: a particle moves along a straight-line segment that is orthogonal to the boundary of a billiard at its endpoints. In this problem issues from mechanics (variational principles), linear algebra (spectral properties of products of symmetric operators), and geometry (focal points, caustics, etc.) are naturally intertwined. Multidimensional variants of Hill’s formula, which relates the dynamic and geometric properties of a periodic trajectory, are discussed. Stability conditions are expressed in terms of the geometric properties of the boundary of a billiard. In particular, it turns out that a nondegenerate two-link trajectory of maximum length is always unstable. The degree of instability (the number of multipliers outside the unit disk) is estimated. The estimates are expressed in terms of the geometry of the caustic and the Morse indices of the length function of this trajectory.

Abstract
pdf (689.16 Kb)
The equations of motion of a collisionless continuum are derived within an Eulerian approach. They differ from the classical equations of motion of an ideal gas, which take into account heat conduction phenomena. Several problems related to the weak convergence of the solutions of the equations of motion of a continuum when there is an unbounded increase in time are discussed. The problem of the correctness of the operation of truncating the exact infinite chain of equations of a collisionless gas is examined.

Abstract

In this paper we develop a new model of non-holonomic billiard that accounts for the intrinsic rotation of the billiard ball. This model is a limit case of the problem of rolling without slipping of a ball without slipping over a quadric surface. The billiards between two parallel walls and inside a circle are studied in detail. Using the three-dimensional-point-map technique, the non-integrability of the non-holonomic billiard within an ellipse is shown.

Abstract
pdf (323.98 Kb)
We consider a continuum of interacting particles whose evolution is governed by the Vlasov kinetic equation. An infinite sequence of equations of motion for this medium (in the Eulerian description) is derived and its general properties are explored. An important example is a collisionless gas, which exhibits irreversible behavior. Though individual particles interact via a potential, the dynamics of the continuum bears dissipative features. Applicability of the Vlasov equations to the modeling of small-scale turbulence is discussed.

Statistical Irreversibility of the Kac Reversible Circular Model
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2011, vol. 16, no. 5, pp. 536-549
Abstract
pdf (202.6 Kb)
The Kac circular model is a discrete dynamical system which has the property of recurrence and reversibility. Within the framework of this model M.Kac formulated necessary conditions for irreversibility over "short" time intervals to take place and demonstrated Boltzmann’s most important exploration methods and ideas, outlining their advantages and limitations. We study the circular model within the realm of the theory of Gibbs ensembles and offer a new approach to a rigorous proof of the "zeroth" law of thermodynamics based on the analysis of weak convergence of probability distributions.
Rolling of a Homogeneous Ball over a Dynamically Asymmetric Sphere
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2011, vol. 16, no. 5, pp. 465-483
Abstract
pdf (643.15 Kb)
We consider a novel mechanical system consisting of two spherical bodies rolling over each other, which is a natural extension of the famous Chaplygin problem of rolling motion of a ball on a plane. In contrast to the previously explored non-holonomic systems, this one has a higher dimension and is considerably more complicated. One remarkable property of our system is the existence of "clandestine" linear in momenta first integrals. For a more trivial integrable system, their counterparts were discovered by Chaplygin. We have also found a few cases of integrability.

Abstract

The problem of Hamiltonization of nonholonomic systems, both integrable and non-integrable, is considered. This question is important in the qualitative analysis of such systems and it enables one to determine possible dynamical effects. The first part of the paper is devoted to representing integrable systems in a conformally Hamiltonian form. In the second part, the existence of a conformally Hamiltonian representation in a neighborhood of a periodic solution is proved for an arbitrary (including integrable) system preserving an invariant measure. Throughout the paper, general constructions are illustrated by examples in nonholonomic mechanics.

The Hamiltonian representation and integrability of the nonholonomic Suslov problem and its generalization suggested by S. A. Chaplygin are considered. This subject is important for understanding the qualitative features of the dynamics of this system, being in particular related to a nontrivial asymptotic behavior (i. e., to a certain scattering problem). A general approach based on studying a hierarchy in the dynamical behavior of nonholonomic systems is developed.

A rigid cylinder on a viscoelastic plane

Abstract
pdf (499.7 Kb)
The paper considers two two-dimensional dynamical problems for an absolutely rigid cylinder interacting with a deformable flat base (the motion of an absolutely rigid disk on a base which in non-deformed condition is a straight line). The base is a sufficiently stiff viscoelastic medium that creates a normal pressure $p(x) = kY(x)+ν\dot{Y}(x)$, where $x$ is a coordinate on the straight line, $Y(x)$ is a normal displacement of the point $x$, and $k$ and $ν$ are elasticity and viscosity coefficients (the Kelvin—Voigt medium). We are also of the opinion that during deformation the base generates friction forces, which are subject to Coulomb’s law. We consider the phenomenon of impact that arises during an arbitrary fall of the disk onto the straight line and investigate the disk’s motion «along the straight line» including the stages of sliding and rolling.

Generalized Chaplygin’s transformation and explicit integration of a system with a spherical support
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2011, vol. 7, no. 2, pp. 313-338
Abstract
pdf (1.78 Mb)
We consider the problem of explicit integration and bifurcation analysis for two systems of nonholonomic mechanics. The first one is the Chaplygin’s problem on no-slip rolling of a balanced dynamically non-symmetrical ball on a horizontal plane. The second problem is on the motion of rigid body in a spherical support. We explicitly integrate this problem by generalizing the transformation which Chaplygin applied to the integration of the problem of the rolling ball at a non-zero constant of areas. We consider the geometric interpretation of this transformation from the viewpoint of a trajectory isomorphism between two systems at different levels of the energy integral. Generalization of this transformation for the case of dynamics in a spherical support allows us to integrate the equations of motion explicitly in quadratures and, in addition, to indicate periodic solutions and analyze their stability. We also show that adding a gyrostat does not lead to the loss of integrability.

Abstract
The paper discusses some mathematical models of traffic flow. We have introduced the concept of a stationary r-connected traffic flow on k-lane road as a development of the hydrodynamic approach and cellular automata method. A client-server based software “SSSR”-system, using smart-phone programming, for evaluating a distance of safety in continuous traffic was developed. A series of experiments were carried out using the SSSR-system, the results showing good agreement with those obtained by Greenshields in 1933. Other problems of traffic monitoring and control by the programmed SSSR-system are discussed. We also introduce a few open problems.

On the variational principles of mechanics
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, 2010, vol. 74, no. 5, pp. 505–512
Abstract
Variational principles, generalizing the classical d’Alembert–Lagrange, Hölder, and Hamilton–Ostrogradskii principles, are established. After the addition of anisotropic dissipative forces and taking the limit, when the coefficient of viscous friction tends to infinity, these variational principles transform into the classical principles, which describe the motion of systems with constraints. New variational relations are established for searching for the periodic trajectories of the reversible equations of dynamics.

Linear systems of differential equations allowing of functions in quadratic forms that do not increase along trajectories with time are considered. The relations between the indices of inertia of these forms and the degrees of instability of equilibrium states are indicated. These assertions generalize known results from the oscillation theory of linear systems with dissipation, and reveal the mechanism of loss of stability when non-increasing quadratic forms lose the property of a minimum.

Abstract

In this paper a general topological approach is proposed for the study of stability of periodic solutions of integrable dynamical systems with two degrees of freedom. The methods developed are illustrated by examples of several integrable problems related to the classical Euler–Poisson equations, the motion of a rigid body in a fluid, and the dynamics of gaseous expanding ellipsoids. These topological methods also enable one to find non-degenerate periodic solutions of integrable systems, which is especially topical in those cases where no general solution (for example, by separation of variables) is known.

Abstract

The paper is concerned with a class of problems which involves the dynamical interaction of a rigid body with point vortices on the surface of a two-dimensional sphere. The general approach to the 2D hydrodynamics is further developed. The problem of motion of a dynamically symmetric circular body interacting with a single vortex is shown to be integrable. Mass vortices on $S^2$ are introduced and the related issues (such as equations of motion, integrability, partial solutions, etc.) are discussed. This paper is a natural progression of the author’s previous research on interaction of rigid bodies and point vortices in a plane.

Lagrangian mechanics and dry friction
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2010, vol. 6, no. 4, pp. 855-868
Abstract
pdf (265.11 Kb)
A generalization of Amantons’ law of dry friction for constrained Lagrangian systems is formulated. Under a change of generalized coordinates the components of the dry-friction force transform according to the covariant rule and the force itself satisfies the Painlevé condition. In particular, the pressure of the system on a constraint is independent of the anisotropic-friction tensor. Such an approach provides an insight into the Painlevé dry-friction paradoxes. As an example, the general formulas for the sliding friction force and torque and the rotation friction torque on a body contacting with a surface are obtained.

Abstract
pdf (10.3 Mb)
A new concept of dynamic advection is introduced. The model of dynamic advection deals with the motion of massive particles in a 2D flow of an ideal incompressible liquid. Unlike the standard advection problem, which is widely treated in the modern literature, our equations of motion account not only for particles’ kinematics, governed by the Euler equations, but also for their dynamics (which is obviously neglected if the mass of particles is taken to be zero). A few simple model problems are considered.

Abstract

We consider a continuum of interacting particles whose evolution is governed by the Vlasov kinetic equation. An infinite sequence of equations of motion for this medium (in the Eulerian description) is derived and its general properties are explored. An important example is a collisionless gas, which exhibits irreversible behavior. Though individual particles interact via a potential, the dynamics of the continuum bears dissipative features. Applicability of the Vlasov equations to the modeling of small-scale turbulence is discussed.

Abstract

In this paper we develop a new model of non-holonomic billiard that accounts for the intrinsic rotation of the billiard ball. This model is a limit case of the problem of rolling without slipping of a ball without slipping over a quadric surface. The billiards between two parallel walls and inside a circle are studied in detail. Using the three-dimensional-point-map technique, the non-integrability of the non-holonomic billiard within an ellipse is shown.

We consider the problems of Hamiltonian representation and integrability of the nonholonomic Suslov system and its generalization suggested by S. A. Chaplygin. These aspects are very important for understanding the dynamics and qualitative analysis of the system. In particular, they are related to the nontrivial asymptotic behaviour (i. e. to some scattering problem). The paper presents a general approach based on the study of the hierarchy of dynamical behaviour of nonholonomic systems.

The dynamics of a Chaplygin sleigh
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, 2009, vol. 73, no. 2, pp. 156-161
Abstract
pdf (263.77 Kb)
The problem of the motion of a Chaplygin sleigh on horizontal and inclined surfaces is considered. The possibility of representing the equations of motion in Hamiltonian form and of integration using Liouville’s theorem (with a redundant algebra of integrals) is investigated. The asymptotics for the rectilinear uniformly accelerated sliding of a sleigh along the line of steepest descent are determined in the case of an inclined plane. The zones in the plane of the initial conditions, corresponding to a different behaviour of the sleigh, are constructed using numerical calculations. The boundaries of these domains are of a complex fractal nature, which enables a conclusion to be drawn concerning the probable character from of the dynamic behaviour.

On the mechanism of stability loss

Abstract
pdf (316.78 Kb)
We consider linear systems of differential equations admitting functions in the form of quadratic forms that do not increase along trajectories in the course of time. We find new relations between the inertia indices of these forms and the instability degrees of the equilibria. These assertions generalize well-known results in the oscillation theory of linear systems with dissipation and clarify the mechanism of stability loss, whereby nonincreasing quadratic forms lose the property of minimum.

Abstract

We consider the motion of a material point on the surface of a sphere in the field of $2n + 1$ identical Hooke centers (singularities with elastic potential) lying on a great circle. Our main result is that this system is superintegrable. The property of superintegrability for this system has been conjectured by us in [1], where the structure of a superintegral of arbitrarily high odd degree in momemnta was outlined. We also indicate an isomorphism between this system and the one-dimensional $N$-particle system discussed in the recent paper [2] and show that for the latter system an analogous superintegral can be constructed.

Abstract
pdf (885.59 Kb)
The dynamics of self-gravitating liquid and gas ellipsoids is considered. A literary survey and authors’ original results obtained using modern techniques of nonlinear dynamics are presented. Strict Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of the equations of motion are given; in particular, a Hamiltonian formalism based on Lie algebras is described. Problems related to nonintegrability and chaos are formulated and analyzed. All the known integrability cases are classified, and the most natural hypotheses on the nonintegrability of the equations of motion in the general case are presented. The results of numerical simulations are described. They, on the one hand, demonstrate a chaotic behavior of the system and, on the other hand, can in many cases serve as a numerical proof of the nonintegrability (the method of transversally intersecting separatrices).

Abstract
pdf (472.45 Kb)
Systems of material points interacting both with one another and with an external field are considered in Euclidean space. For the case of arbitrary binary interaction depending solely on the mutual distance between the bodies, new integrals are found, which form a Galilean momentum vector. A corresponding algebra of integrals constituted by the integrals of momentum, angular momentum, and Galilean momentum is presented. Particle systems with a particleinteraction potential homogeneous of degree $\alpha = –2$ are considered. The most general form of the additional integral of motion, which we term the Jacobi integral, is presented for such systems. A new nonlinear algebra of integrals including the Jacobi integral is found. A systematic description is given to a new reduction procedure and possibilities of applying it to dynamics with the aim of lowering the order of Hamiltonian systems.
Some new integrable and superintegrable systems generalizing the classical ones are also described. Certain generalizations of the Lagrangian identity for systems with a particle interaction potential homogeneous of degree $\alpha = –2$ are presented. In addition, computational experiments are used to prove the nonintegrability of the Jacobi problem on a plane.

An example of a non-autonomous continuous-time system with attractor of Plykin type in the Poincare map
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2009, vol. 5, no. 3, pp. 403-424
Abstract
pdf (2.26 Mb)
A non-autonomous flow system is introduced, which may serve as a base for elaboration of real systems and devices demonstrating the structurally stable chaotic dynamics. The starting point is the map of the sphere composed of four stages of sequential continuous geometrically evident transformations. The computations indicate that in a certain parameter range the map posseses an attractor of Plykin type. Accounting the structural stability intrinsic to this attractor, a modification of the model is undertaken, which includes a variable change with passage to representation of instantaneous states on the plane. As a result, a set of two non-autonomous differential equations of the first order with smooth coefficients is obtained explicitly, which has the Plykin type attractor in the plane in the Poincaré cross-section. Results of computations are presented for the sphere map and for the flow system including portraits of attractors, Lyapunov exponents, dimension estimates. Substantiation of the hyperbolic nature of the attractors for the sphere map and for the flow system is based on a computer procedure of verification of the so-called cone criterion; in this context, some hints are applied, which may be useful in similar computations for some other systems.

Abstract
pdf (896.55 Kb)
With the help of mathematical modeling, we study the behavior of a gas ($\sim10^6$ particles) in a one-dimensional tube. For this dynamical system, we consider the following cases:
— collisionless gas (with and without gravity) in a tube with both ends closed, the particles of the gas bounce elastically between the ends,
— collisionless gas in a tube with its left end vibrating harmonically in a prescribed manner,
— collisionless gas in a tube with a moving piston, the piston’s mass is comparable to the mass of a particle.
The emphasis is on the analysis of the asymptotic ($t→∞$)) behavior of the system and specifically on the transition to the state of statistical or thermal equilibrium. This analysis allows preliminary conclusions on the nature of relaxation processes.
At the end of the paper the numerical and theoretical results obtained are discussed. It should be noted that not all the results fit well the generally accepted theories and conjectures from the standard texts and modern works on the subject.

Abstract
pdf (429.33 Kb)
The paper is concerned with a class of problems which involves the dynamical interaction of a rigid body with point vortices on the surface of a two-dimensional sphere. The general approach to the 2D hydrodynamics is further developed. The problem of motion of a dynamically symmetric circular body interacting with a single vortex is shown to be integrable. Mass vortices on $S^2$ are introduced and the related issues (such as equations of motion, integrability, partial solutions, etc.) are discussed. This paper is a natural progression of the author’s previous research on interaction of rigid bodies and point vortices in a plane.

Abstract

The generalized model of formation of a new phase is considered. The basic stages of process of growth are gathered in a model at phase transition of the first sort. The numerical solution of the kinetic equation of Fokker–Planck is received. Dependence of the solution on parametres of system is investigated. Areas of applicability of assumptions made by Zeldovich, Lifshits and Slezov are revealed. Also it is shown, that depending on parametres of system it is possible to reserve both equilibrium distribution, and automodelling distribution of Lifshits–Slezov. At some values of parametres the equation has the oscillatory solution.

These papers, written by outstanding mathematicians of XIX centry, had a substantial influence on the development of many fields of modern mathematics and physics. The study of the Clebsch case and equivalent systems is far from completion, therefore, this problem remains one of the central in the theory of integrable systems.

Chaplygin ball over a fixed sphere: an explicit integration

Abstract
pdf (282.96 Kb)
We consider a nonholonomic system describing the rolling of a dynamically nonsymmetric sphere over a fixed sphere without slipping. The system generalizes the classical nonholonomic Chaplygin sphere problem and it is shown to be integrable for one special ratio of radii of the spheres. After a time reparameterization the system becomes a Hamiltonian one and admits a separation of variables and reduction to Abel–Jacobi quadratures. The separating variables that we found appear to be a non-trivial generalization of ellipsoidal (spheroconic) coordinates on the Poisson sphere, which can be useful in other integrable problems.
Using the quadratures we also perform an explicit integration of the problem in theta-functions of the new time.

This paper can be regarded as a continuation of our previous work [1, 2] on the hierarchy of the dynamical behavior of nonholonomic systems. We consider different mechanical systems with nonholonomic constraints; in particular, we examine the existence of tensor invariants (laws of conservation) and their connection with the behavior of a system. Considerable attention is given to the possibility of conformally Hamiltonian representation of the equations of motion, which is mainly used for the integration of the considered systems.

Abstract

In this paper, we consider the transition to chaos in the phase portrait of a restricted problem of rotation of a rigid body with a fixed point. Two interrelated mechanisms responsible for chaotization are indicated: (1) the growth of the homoclinic structure and (2) the development of cascades of period doubling bifurcations. On the zero level of the area integral, an adiabatic behavior of the system (as the energy tends to zero) is noted. Meander tori induced by the break of the torsion property of the mapping are found.

Abstract
pdf (447.19 Kb)
For the classical problem of motion of a rigid body about a fixed point with zero area integral, we present a family of solutions that are periodic in the absolute space. Such solutions are known as choreographies. The family includes the well-known Delone solutions (for the Kovalevskaya case), some particular solutions for the Goryachev–Chaplygin case, and the Steklov solution. The "genealogy" of solutions of the family naturally appearing from the energy continuation and their connection with the Staude rotations are considered. It is shown that if the integral of areas is zero, the solutions are periodic with respect to a coordinate frame that rotates uniformly about the vertical (relative choreographies).

Abstract
pdf (192.61 Kb)
The paper develops an approach to the proof of the "zeroth" law of thermodynamics. The approach is based on the analysis of weak limits of solutions to the Liouville equation as time grows infinitely. A class of linear oscillating systems is indicated for which the average energy becomes eventually uniformly distributed among the degrees of freedom for any initial probability density functions. An example of such systems are sympathetic pendulums. Conditions are found for nonlinear Hamiltonian systems with finite number of degrees of freedom to converge in a weak sense to the state where the mean energies of the interacting subsystems are the same. Some issues related to statistical models of the thermostat are discussed.

The paper develops further the algebraic-reduction method for $SO(4)$-symmetric systems on the three-dimensional sphere. Canonical variables for the reduced system are constructed both on two-dimensional and three-dimensional spheres. The method is illustrated by applying it to the two-body problem on a sphere (the bodies are assumed to interact with a potential that depends only on the geodesic distance between them) and the three-vortex problem on a two-dimensional sphere.

The paper contains the review and original results on the dynamics of liquid and gas self-gravitating ellipsoids. Equations of motion are given in Lagrangian and Hamiltonian form, in particular, the Hamiltonian formalism on Lie algebras is presented. Problems of nonintegrability and chaotical behavior of the system are formulated and studied. We also classify all known integrable cases and give some hypotheses about nonintegrability in the general case. Results of numerical modelling are presented, which can be considered as a computer proof of nonintegrability.

Abstract

This paper can be regarded as a continuation of our previous work [70,71] on the hierarchy of the dynamical behavior of nonholonomic systems. We consider different mechanical systems with nonholonomic constraints; in particular, we examine the existence of tensor invariants (laws of conservation) and their connection with the behavior of a system. Considerable attention is given to the possibility of conformally Hamiltonian representation of the equations of motion, which is mainly used for the integration of the considered systems.

Abstract

The famous Lagrange identity expresses the second derivative of the moment of inertia of a system of material points through the kinetic energy and homogeneous potential energy. The paper presents various extensions of this brilliant result to the case 1) of constrained mechanical systems, 2) when the potential energy is quasi-homogeneous in coordinates and 3) of continuumof interacting particles governed by the well-known Vlasov kinetic equation.
Generalization of Lagrange’s identity and new integrals of motion

Abstract
pdf (154.14 Kb)
We discuss system of material points in Euclidean space interacting both with each other and with external field. In particular we consider systems of particles whose interacting is described by homogeneous potential of degree of homogeneity $\alpha=-2$. Such systems were first considered by Newton and—more systematically—by Jacobi). For such systems there is an extra hidden symmetry, and corresponding first integral of motion which we call Jacobi integral. This integral was given in different papers starting with Jacobi, but we present in general. Furthermore, we construct a new algebra of integrals including Jacobi integral. A series of generalizations of Lagrange's identity for systems with homogeneous potential of degree of homogeneity $\alpha=-2$ is given. New integrals of motion for these generalizations are found.

Abstract
pdf (7.9 Mb)
The motion of two vortex rings on a sphere is considered. This motion generalizes the well-known centrally symmetrical solution of the equations of point vortex dynamics on a plane derived by D.N. Goryachev, N.S. Vasiliev and H. Aref. The equations of motion in this case are shown to be Liouville integrable, and an explicit reduction to a Hamiltonian system with one degree of freedom is described. Two particular cases in which the solutions are periodical are presented. Explicit quadratures are given for these solutions. Phase portraits are described and bifurcation diagrams are shown for centrally symmetrical motion of four vortices on a sphere.

The dynamics of an antipodal vortex on a sphere (a point vortex plus its antipode with opposite circulation) is considered. It is shown that the system of n antipodal vortices can be reduced by four dimensions (two degrees of freedom). The cases $n = 2, 3$ are explored in greater detail both analytically and numerically.

Abstract

We consider dynamical systems with a phase space Γ that preserve a measure μ. A partition of Γ into parts of finite μ-measure generates the coarse-grained entropy, a functional that is defined on the space of probability measures on Γ and generalizes the usual (ordinary or fine-grained) Gibbs entropy. We study the approximation properties of the coarse-grained entropy under refinement of the partition and also the properties of the coarse-grained entropy as a function of time.

Abstract
pdf (154.1 Kb)
We consider some questions connected with the Hamiltonian form of two problems of nonholonomic mechanics, namely the Chaplygin ball problem and the Veselova problem. For these problems we find representations in the form of the generalized Chaplygin systems that can be integrated by the reducing multiplier method. We give a concrete algebraic form of the Poisson brackets which, together with an appropriate change of time, enable us to write down the equations of motion of the problems under study. Some generalization of these problems are considered and new ways of implementation of nonholonomic constraints are proposed. We list a series of nonholonomic systems possessing an invariant measure and sufficiently many first integrals for which the question about the Hamiltonian form remains open even after change of time. We prove a theorem on isomorphism of the dynamics of the Chaplygin ball and the motion of a body in a fluid in the Clebsch case.

The equations of motion for the second problem are non-holonomic and exhibit some new features not typical for Hamiltonian systems.

Abstract

Consider the problem of rolling a dynamically asymmetric balanced ball (the Chaplygin ball) over a sphere. Suppose that the contact point has zero velocity and the projection of the angular velocity to the normal vector of the sphere equals zero. This model of rolling differs from the classical one. It can be realized, in some approximation, if the ball is rubber coated and the sphere is absolutely rough. Recently, J. Koiller and K. Ehlers pointed out the measure and the Hamiltonian structure for this problem. Using this structure we construct an isomorphism between this problem and the problem of the motion of a point on a sphere in some potential field. The integrable cases are found.

We consider the interaction of two vortex patches (elliptic Kirchhoff vortices) which move in an unbounded volume of an ideal incompressible fluid. A moment second-order model is used to describe the interaction. The case of integrability of a Kirchhoff vortex and a point vortex is qualitatively analyzed. A new case of integrability of two Kirchhoff vortices is found by the variable separation method . A reduced form of equations for two Kirchhoff vortices is proposed and used to analyze their regular and chaotic behavior.

Abstract

The paper develops an approach to the proof of the «zeroth» law of thermodynamics. The approach is based on the analysis of weak limits of solutions to the Liouville equation as time grows infinitely. A class of linear oscillating systems is indicated for which the average energy becomes eventually uniformly distributed among the degrees of freedom for any initial probability density functions. An example of such systems are sympathetic pendulums. Conditions are found for nonlinear Hamiltonian systems with finite number of degrees of freedom to converge in a weak sense to the state where the average energies of the interacting subsystems are the same. Some issues related to statistical models of the thermostat are discussed.

Abstract
pdf (126.99 Kb)
In this paper we consider the system of an arbitrary two-dimensional cylinder interacting with point vortices in a perfect fluid. We present the equations of motion and discuss their integrability. Simulations show that the system of an elliptic cylinder (with nonzero eccentricity) and a single point vortex already exhibits chaotic features and the equations of motion are nonintegrable. We suggest a Hamiltonian form of the equations. The problem we study here, namely, the equations of motion, the Hamiltonian structure for the interacting system of a cylinder of arbitrary cross-section shape, with zero circulation around it, and $N$ vortices, has been addressed by Shashikanth [Regular Chaotic Dyn. 10, 1 (2005)]. We slightly generalize the work by Shashikanth by allowing for nonzero circulation around the cylinder and offer a different approach than that by Shashikanth by using classical complex variable theory.

Abstract
pdf (350.69 Kb)
In this paper we consider the system of two 2D rigid circular cylinders immersed in an unbounded volume of inviscid perfect fluid. The circulations around the cylinders are assumed to be equal in magnitude and opposite in sign. We also explore some special cases of this system assuming that the cylinders move along the line through their centers and the circulation around each cylinder is zero. A similar system of two interacting spheres was originally considered in the classical works of Carl and Vilhelm Bjerknes, H. Lamb and N.E. Joukowski. By making the radii of the cylinders infinitesimally small, we have obtained a new mechanical system which consists of two regular point vortices but with non-zero masses. The study of this system can be reduced to the study of the motion of a particle subject to potential and gyroscopic forces. A new integrable case is found. The Hamiltonian equations of motion for this system have been generalized to the case of an arbitrary number of mass vortices with arbitrary intensities. Some first integrals have been obtained. These equations expand upon the classical Kirchhoff equations of motion for n point vortices.

New effects in dynamics of rattlebacks

Abstract
pdf (214.19 Kb)
The paper considers the dynamics of a rattleback as a model of a heavy balanced ellipsoid of revolution rolling without slippage on a fixed horizontal plane. Central ellipsoid of inertia is an ellipsoid of revolution as well. In presence of the angular displacement between two ellipsoids, there occur dynamical effects somewhat similar to the reverse fenomena in earlier models. However, unlike a customary rattleback model (a truncated biaxial paraboloid) our system allows the motions which are superposition of the reverse motion (reverse of the direction of spinning) and the turn over (change of the axis of rotation). With appropriate values of energies and mass distribution, this effect (reverse + turn over) can occur more than once. Such motions as repeated reverse or repeated turn over are also possible.

The rolling motion of a dynamically nonsymmetric balanced ball (Chaplygin ball) on an inclined plane is studied. For the case of a horizontal plane, Chaplygin demonstrated this problem to be integrable. For a nonzero slope, the system is integrable only if the motion starts from a state of rest (E.N. Kharlamova). It is shown that, in the general case, the system exhibits a rather simple asymptotic behavior.

Abstract

We consider a problem about the motion of a heavy rigid body in an unbounded volume of an ideal irrotational incompressible uid. This problem generalizes a classical Kirchhoff problem describing the inertial motion of a rigid body in a uid. We study dfferent special statements of the problem: the plane motion and the motion of an axially symmetric body. In the general case of motion of a rigid body, we study the stability of partial solutions and point out limiting behaviors of the motion when the time increases innitely. Using numerical computations on the plane of initial conditions, we construct domains corresponding to different types of the asymptotic behavior. We establish the fractal nature of the boundary separating these domains.

Equations of motion of vortex sources (examined earlier by Fridman and Polubarinova) are studied, and the problems of their being Hamiltonian and integrable are discussed. A system of two vortex sources and three sources-sinks was examined. Their behavior was found to be regular. Qualitative analysis of this system was made, and the class of Liouville integrable systems is considered. Particular solutions analogous to the homothetic configurations in celestial mechanics are given.

Dynamics of small perturbations of orbits on a torus in a quasiperiodically forced 2D dissipative map

Abstract
pdf (520.95 Kb)
We consider the dynamics of small perturbations of stable two-frequency quasiperiodic orbits on an attracting torus in the quasiperiodically forced Hénon map. Such dynamics consists in an exponential decay of the radial component and in a complex behaviour of the angle component. This behaviour may be two- or three-frequency quasiperiodicity, or it may be irregular. In the latter case a graphic image of the dynamics of the perturbation angle is a fractal object, namely a strange nonchaotic attractor, which appears in auxiliary map for the angle component. Therefore, we claim that stable trajectories may approach the attracting torus either in a regular or in an irregular way. We show that the transition from quasiperiodic dynamics to chaos in the model system is preceded by the appearance of an irregular behaviour in the approach of the perturbed quasiperiodic trajectories to the smooth attracting torus. We also demonstrate a link between the evolution operator of the perturbation angle and a quasiperiodically forced circle mapping of a special form and with a Harper equation with quasiperiodic potential.

Consider the problem of rolling a dynamically asymmetric balanced ball (the Chaplygin ball) over a sphere. Suppose that the contact point has zero velocity and the projection of the angular velocity to the normal vector of the sphere equals zero. This model of rolling differs from the classical one. It can be realized, in some approximation, if the ball is rubber coated and the sphere is absolutely rough. Recently, Koiller and Ehlers pointed out the measure and the Hamiltonian structure for this problem. Using this structure we construct an isomorphism between this problem and the problem of the motion of a point on a sphere in some potential field. The integrable cases are found.

We have discovered a new first integral in the problem of motion of a dynamically symmetric ball, subject to gravity, on the surface of a paraboloid. Using this integral, we have obtained conditions for stability (in the Lyapunov sense) of steady rotations of the ball in the upmost, downmost and saddle point.

Amplitude equations are obtained for a system of two coupled van der Pol oscillators that has been recently suggested as a simple system with hyperbolic chaotic attractor allowing physical realization. We demonstrate that an approximate model based on the amplitude equations preserves basic features of a hyperbolic dynamics of the initial system. For two coupled amplitude equations models having the hyperbolic attractors a transition to synchronous chaos is studied. Phenomena typically accompanying this transition, as riddling and bubbling, are shown to manifest themselves in a specific way and can be observed only in a small vicinity of a critical point. Also, a structure of many-dimensional attractor of the system is described in a region below the synchronization point.

Reduction in the two-body problem on the Lobatchevsky plane
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2006, vol. 2, no. 3, pp. 279-285
Abstract
pdf (148.66 Kb)
We present a reduction-of-order procedure in the problem of motion of two bodies on the Lobatchevsky plane $H^2$. The bodies interact with a potential that depends only on the distance between the bodies (this holds for an analog of the Newtonian potential). In earlier works, this reduction procedure was used to analyze the motion of two bodies on the sphere

Interaction between Kirchhoff vortices and point vortices in an ideal fluid
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2006, vol. 2, no. 2, pp. 199-213
Abstract
pdf (535.61 Kb)
We consider the interaction of two vortex patches (elliptic Kirchhoff vortices) which move in an unbounded volume of an ideal incompressible fluid. A moment second-order model is used to describe the interaction. The case of integrability of a Kirchhoff vortex and a point vortex by the variable separation method is qualitatively analyzed. A new case of integrability of two Kirchhoff vortices is found. A reduced form of equations for two Kirchhoff vortices is proposed and used to analyze their regular and chaotic behavior.

Dynamics of two vortex rings on a sphere
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2006, vol. 2, no. 2, pp. 181-192
Abstract
pdf (321.21 Kb)
The motion of two vortex rings on a sphere is considered. This motion generalizes the well-known centrally symmetrical solution of the equations of point vortex dynamics on a plane derived by D.N. Goryachev and H. Aref. The equations of motion in this case are shown to be Liouville integrable, and an explicit reduction to a Hamiltonian system with one degree of freedom is described. Two particular cases in which the solutions are periodical are presented. Explicit quadratures are given for these solutions. Phase portraits are described and bifurcation diagrams are shown for centrally symmetrical motion of four vortices on a sphere.

On the motion of a heavy rigid body in an ideal fluid with circulation

Abstract

We consider Chaplygin's equations [Izd. Akad. Nauk SSSR 3(3), 1933] describing the planar motion of a rigid body in an unbounded volume of an ideal fluid while circulation around the body is not zero. Hamiltonian structures and new integrable cases are revealed; certain remarkable partial solutions are found and their stability is examined. The nonintegrability of the system describing the motion of a body in the field of gravity is proved and the chaotic behavior of the system is illustrated.

Abstract
pdf (479.18 Kb)
The bifurcation analysis of the Kepler problem on $\mathbb{S}^3$ and $\mathbb{H}^3$ is performed. An analogue of the Delaunay variables is introduced and the motion of a point mass in the field of the Newtonian center moving along a geodesic on $\mathbb{S}^2$ and $\mathbb{H}^2$ (the restricted two-body problem) is investigated. When the curvature is small, the pericenter shift is computed using the perturbation theory. We also present the results of the numerical analysis based on the analogy with the motion of rigid body.

This work brings together previously unpublished notes contributed by participants of the IUTAM Symposium on Hamiltonian Dynamics, Vortex Structures, Turbulence held in Moscow, August 25-30, 2006. The study of vortex motion is of great interest to fluid and gas dynamics; since all real flows are vortical in nature, applications of the vortex theory are extremely diverse, many of them (e.g. aircraft dynamics, atmospheric and ocean phenomena) being especially important. The last few decades have shown that serious possibilities for progress in the research of real turbulent vortex motions are essentially related to the combined use of mathematical methods, computer simulation and laboratory experiments. These approaches have led to a series of interesting results which allow us to study these processes from new perspectives. Based on this principle, the papers collected in this proceedings volume present new results on theoretical and applied aspects and processes of formation and evolution of various flows, wave and coherent structures in gas and fluid. Much attention is given to the studies of nonlinear regular and chaotic regimes of vortex interactions, advective and convective motions. The contributors are leading scientists engaged in fundamental and applied aspects of the above mentioned fields.

Finite action Klein–Gordon solutions on Lorentzian manifolds

Abstract
pdf (163.15 Kb)
The eigenvalue problem for the square integrable solutions is studied usually for elliptic equations. In this paper we consider such a problem for the hyperbolic Klein–Gordon equation on Lorentzian manifolds. The investigation could help to answer the question why elementary particles have a discrete mass spectrum. An infinite family of square integrable solutions for the Klein–Gordon equation on the Friedman type manifolds is constructed. These solutions have a discrete mass spectrum and a finite action. In particular the solutions on de Sitter space are investigated.

Uniform distribution and Voronoi convergence

Abstract
pdf (127.63 Kb)
There is a broad generalization of a uniformly distributed sequence according to Weyl where the frequency of elements of this sequence falling into an interval is defined by using a matrix summation method of a general form. In the present paper conditions for uniform distribution are found in the case where a regular Voronoi method is chosen as the summation method. The proofs are based on estimates of trigonometric sums of a certain special type. It is shown that the sequence of the fractional parts of the logarithms of positive integers is not uniformly distributed for any choice of a regular Voronoi method.

Abstract

We strengthen the well-known Oxtoby theorem for strictly ergodic transformations by replacing the standard Cesaro convergence by the weaker Riesz or Voronoi convergence with monotonically increasing or decreasing weight coefficients. This general result allows, in particular, to strengthen the classical Weyl theorem on the uniform distribution of fractional parts of polynomials with irrational coefficients.
