Abstract
pdf (486.65 Kb)
In this paper we consider the control of the motion of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball
(Chaplygin top) by means of two perpendicular rotors. We propose a mechanism for control by periodically
changing the gyrostatic momentum of the system, which leads to an unbounded speedup. We then formulate
a general hypothesis of the mechanism for speeding up spherical bodies on a plane by periodically changing
the system parameters.

Abstract

This paper is a small review devoted to the dynamics of a point on a paraboloid. Specifically, it is concerned with the motion both under the action of a gravitational field and without it. It is assumed that the paraboloid can rotate about a vertical axis with constant angular velocity. The paper includes both well-known results and a number of new results.
We consider the two most widespread friction (resistance) models: dry (Coulomb) friction and viscous friction. It is shown that the addition of external damping (air drag) can lead to stability of equilibrium at the saddle point and hence to preservation of the region of bounded motion
in a neighborhood of the saddle point. Analysis of three-dimensional Poincar´e sections shows that limit cycles can arise in this case in the neighborhood of the saddle point.

The Chaplygin sleigh with friction moving due to periodic oscillations of an internal mass

Abstract
pdf (2.97 Mb)
For a Chaplygin sleigh moving in the presence of weak friction, we present and investigate two mechanisms of arising acceleration due to oscillations of an internal mass. In certain parameter regions, the mechanism induced by small oscillations determines acceleration which is on average one-directional. The role of friction is that the velocity reached in the process of the acceleration is stabilized at a certain level. The second mechanism is due to the effect of the developing oscillatory parametric instability in the motion of the sleigh. It occurs when the internal oscillating particle is comparable in mass with the main platform and the oscillations are of a sufficiently large amplitude. In the nonholonomic model the magnitude of the parametric oscillations and the level of mean energy achieved by the system turn out to be bounded if the line of the oscillations of the moving particle is displaced from the center of mass; the observed sustained motion is in many cases associated with a chaotic attractor. Then, the motion of the sleigh appears to be similar to the process of two-dimensional random walk on the plane.

Invariant Submanifolds of Genus 5 and a Cantor Staircase in the Nonholonomic Model of a Snakeboard

Abstract
pdf (2.79 Mb)
In this paper, we address the free (uncontrolled) dynamics of a snakeboard consisting of two
wheel pairs fastened to a platform. The snakeboard is one of the well-known sports vehicles on
which the sportsman executes necessary body movements. From the theoretical point of view,
this system is a direct generalization of the classical nonholonomic system of the Chaplygin
sleigh. We carry out a topological and qualitative analysis of trajectories of this dynamical
system. An important feature of the problem is that the common level set of first integrals is
a compact two-dimensional surface of genus 5. We specify conditions under which the reaction
forces infinitely increase during motion and the so-called phenomenon of nonholonomic jamming
is observed. In this case, the nonholonomic model ceases to work and it is necessary to use more
complex mechanical models incorporating sliding, elasticity, etc.

Fermi-like acceleration and power-law energy growth in nonholonomic systems

Abstract
pdf (974.09 Kb)
This paper is concerned with a nonholonomic system with parametric excitation—the Chaplygin sleigh with time-varying mass distribution. A
detailed analysis is made of the problem of the existence of regimes with unbounded growth of energy (an analogue of Fermi’s acceleration) in the
case where excitation is achieved by means of a rotor with variable angular momentum. The existence of trajectories for which the translational velocity of the sleigh increases indefinitely and has the asymptotics $\tau^{\frac{1}{3}}$ is proved. In addition, it is shown that, when viscous friction with a nondegenerate Rayleigh function is added, unbounded speed-up disappears and the trajectories of the reduced system asymptotically tend to a limit cycle.

Nonholonomic rolling of a ball on the surface of a rotating cone
Nonlinear Dynamics, 2019, vol. 97, no. 2, pp. 1635-1648
Abstract
pdf (1.04 Mb)
This paper investigates the rolling without slipping of a homogeneous heavy ball on the surface of a rotating cone in two settings: without dissipation in a nonholonomic setting and with rolling friction torque which is proportional to the angular velocity of the ball. In the nonholonomic setting, the resulting system of five differential equations on the level set of first integrals is reduced to quadratures. A bifurcation analysis of the above system is carried out to determine the possible types of motion. In the second case, it is shown that there are not only trajectories emanating from the lower point of the cone (its vertex), but also trajectories to the vertex of the cone (fall). An analysis of the dependence of the type of terminal motion of the center of mass of the ball on initial conditions is carried out.

Reduction and relative equilibria for the two-body problem on spaces of constant curvature
Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy, 2018, vol. 130, no. 6, pp. 1-36
Abstract
pdf (1.38 Mb)
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.

Comparing Dynamics Initiated by an Attached Oscillating Particle for the Nonholonomic Model of a Chaplygin Sleigh and for a Model with Strong Transverse and Weak Longitudinal Viscous Friction Applied at a Fixed Point on the Body

Abstract
pdf (1014 Kb)
This paper addresses the problem of a rigid body moving on a plane (a platform) whose motion is initiated by oscillations of a point mass relative to the body in the presence of the viscous friction force applied at a fixed point of the platform and having in one direction a small (or even zero) value and a large value in the transverse direction. This problem is analogous to that of a Chaplygin sleigh when the nonholonomic constraint prohibiting motions of the fixed point on the platform across the direction prescribed on it is replaced by viscous friction. We present numerical results which confirm correspondence between the phenomenology of complex dynamics of the model with a nonholonomic constraint and a system with viscous friction —
phase portraits of attractors, bifurcation diagram, and Lyapunov exponents. In particular, we show the possibility of the platform’s motion being accelerated by oscillations of the internal mass, although, in contrast to the nonholonomic model, the effect of acceleration tends to saturation. We also show the possibility of chaotic dynamics related to strange attractors of equations for generalized velocities, which is accompanied by a two-dimensional random walk of the platform in a laboratory reference system. The results obtained may be of interest to applications in the context of the problem of developing robotic mechanisms for motion in a fluid under the action of the motions of internal masses.

Self-propulsion of a Smooth Body in a Viscous Fluid Under Periodic Oscillations of a Rotor and Circulation
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2018, vol. 23, no. 7-8, pp. 850-874
Abstract
pdf (4.03 Mb)
This paper addresses the problem of the self-propulsion of a smooth body in a fluid by periodic oscillations of the internal rotor and circulation. In the case of zero dissipation and constant circulation, it is shown using methods of KAM theory that the kinetic energy of the system is a bounded function of time. In the case of constant nonzero circulation, the trajectories of the center of mass of the system lie in a bounded region of the plane. The method of expansion by a small parameter is used to approximately construct a solution corresponding to directed motion of a circular foil in the presence of dissipation and variable circulation.
Analysis of this approximate solution has shown that a speed-up is possible in the system in the presence of variable circulation and in the absence of resistance to translational motion. It is shown that, in the case of an elliptic foil, directed motion is also possible. To explore the dynamics of the system in the general case, bifurcation diagrams, a chart of dynamical regimes
and a chart of the largest Lyapunov exponent are plotted. It is shown that the transition to chaos occurs through a cascade of period-doubling bifurcations.

Exotic Dynamics of Nonholonomic Roller Racer with Periodic Control

Abstract
pdf (1.99 Mb)
In this paper we consider the problem of the motion of the Roller Racer.We assume
that the angle $\varphi (t)$ between the platforms is a prescribed function of time. We prove that in
this case the acceleration of the Roller Racer is unbounded.
In this case, as the Roller Racer accelerates, the increase in the constraint reaction forces is also
unbounded. Physically this means that, from a certain instant onward, the conditions of the
rolling motion of the wheels without slipping are violated. Thus, we consider a model in which,
in addition to the nonholonomic constraints, viscous friction force acts at the points of contact
of the wheels. For this case we prove that there is no constant acceleration and all trajectories
of the reduced system asymptotically tend to a periodic solution.

An Invariant Measure and the Probability of a Fall in the Problem of an Inhomogeneous Disk Rolling on a Plane

Abstract
pdf (662.06 Kb)
This paper addresses the problem of an inhomogeneous disk rolling on a horizontal plane. This problem is considered within the framework of a nonholonomic model in which there is no slipping and no spinning at the point of contact (the projection of the angular velocity of the disk onto the normal to the plane is zero). The configuration space of the system of interest contains singular submanifolds which correspond to the fall of the disk and in which the equations of motion have a singularity. Using the theory of normal hyperbolic manifolds, it is proved that the measure of trajectories leading to the fall of the disk is zero.

Abstract
pdf (2.88 Mb)
This paper addresses the problem of self-propulsion of a smooth profile in a medium with viscous dissipation and circulation by means of parametric excitation generated by oscillations of the moving internal mass. For the case of zero dissipation, using methods of KAM theory, it is shown that the kinetic energy of the system is a bounded function of time, and in the case of nonzero circulation the trajectories of the profile lie in a bounded region of the space. In the general case, using charts of dynamical regimes and charts of Lyapunov exponents, it is shown that the system can exhibit limit cycles (in particular, multistability), quasi-periodic regimes (attracting tori) and strange attractors. One-parameter bifurcation diagrams are constructed, and Neimark – Sacker bifurcations and period-doubling bifurcations are found. To analyze the efficiency of displacement of the profile depending on the circulation and parameters defining the motion of the internal mass, charts of values of displacement for a fixed number of periods are plotted. A hypothesis is formulated that, when nonzero circulation arises, the trajectories of the profile are compact. Using computer calculations, it is shown that in the case of anisotropic dissipation an unbounded growth of the kinetic energy of the system (Fermi-like acceleration) is possible.

Abstract

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.

In this work we investigate the motion of a homogeneous ball rolling without slipping on uniformly rotating horizontal and inclined planes under the action of a constant external force supplemented with the moment of rolling friction, which depends linearly on the angular velocity of the ball. We systematise well-known results and supplement them with the stability analysis of partial solutions of the system. We also perform an experimental investigation whose results support the adequacy of the rolling friction model used. Comparison of numerical and experimental results has shown a good qualitative agreement.

This paper addresses the problem of the Chaplygin ball rolling on a horizontal plane which rotates with constant angular velocity. In this case, the equations of motion admit area integrals, an integral of squared angular momentum and the Jacobi integral, which is a generalization of the energy integral, and possess an invariant measure. After reduction the problem reduces to investigating a three-dimensional Poincaré map that preserves phase volume (with density defined by the invariant measure). We show that in the general case the system’s dynamics is chaotic.

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.

This paper presents results of theoretical and experi-

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.

This is a survey of the main forms of equations of dynamical

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.

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
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.

Abstract
pdf (2.82 Mb)
This paper is concerned with two systems from sub-Riemannian geometry. 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.

Chaplygin sleigh with periodically oscillating internal mass
EPL, 2017, vol. 119, no. 6, 60008, 7 pp.
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

This paper provides a detailed description of various reduction schemes in rigid
body dynamics. The analysis of one of such nontrivial reductions makes it possible to put the
cases already found in order and to obtain new generalizations of the Kovalevskaya case to $e(3)$.
Note that the indicated reduction allows one to obtain in a natural way some singular additive
terms that were proposed earlier by D.N. Goryachev.

We consider an integrable Hamiltonian system describing the motion of a circular cylinder and a vortex filament in an ideal fluid. We construct bifurcation diagrams and bifurcation complexes for the case in which the integral manifold is compact and for various topological structures of the symplectic leaf. The types of motions corresponding to the bifurcation curves and their stability 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 (2.21 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 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.

Abstract
pdf (1.45 Mb)
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.

Abstract

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).

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

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.

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.

can cease simultaneously, which is determined by the position of the tripod’s
supports relative to the radius of inertia. In addition, the dependence of the
trajectory of the center of mass on the system parameters is investigated. A

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.

Figures of equilibrium of an inhomogeneous self-gravitating fluid

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.

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.

In this paper we discuss conditions for the existence of the Jacobi integral (that generalizes energy) in systems with inhomogeneous and nonholonomic constraints. As an example, we consider in detail the problem of motion of the Chaplygin sleigh on a rotating plane and the motion of a dynamically symmetric ball on a uniformly rotating surface. In addition, we discuss illustrative mechanical models based on the motion of a homogeneous ball on a rotating table and on the Beltrami surface.

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.

Abstract
pdf (2.38 Mb)
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.

obtained in the framework of this approach are all isomorphic to the Lie–Poisson $e$(3)-bracket. As two model examples, we consider the Chaplygin ball

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.

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.

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.

Abstract

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.

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

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.

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.

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
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2014, vol. 10, no. 1, pp. 73-100
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.

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.

In our earlier paper [3] we examined the problem of control of a balanced dynamically nonsymmetric sphere with rotors with no-slip condition at the point of contact. In this paper we investigate the controllability of a ball in the presence of friction. We also study the problem of the existence and stability of singular dissipation-free periodic solutions for a free ball in the presence of friction forces. The issues of constructive realization of the proposed algorithms are discussed.

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.

This paper develops the theory of the reducing multiplier for a special class of nonholonomic dynamical systems, when the resulting nonlinear Poisson structure is reduced to the Lie–Poisson bracket of the algebra $e(3)$. As an illustration, the Chaplygin ball rolling problem and the Veselova system are considered. In addition, an integrable gyrostatic generalization of the Veselova system is obtained.

The dynamics of nonholonomic systems consisting of a spherical shell with a moving rigid body inside
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2013, vol. 9, no. 3, pp. 547-566
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.

The paper presents experimental investigation of a homogeneous circular disk rolling on a horizontal plane. In this paper two methods of experimental determination of the loss of contact between the rolling disk and the horizontal surface before the abrupt halt are proposed. Experimental results for disks of different masses and different materials are presented. The reasons for “micro losses” of contact with surface revealed during the rolling are discussed.

The hierarchy of dynamics of a rigid body rolling without slipping and spinning on a plane and a sphere

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

In our earlier paper [2] we examined the problem of control of a balanced dynamically nonsymmetric sphere with rotors with no-slip condition at the point of contact. In this paper we investigate the controllability of a ball in the presence of friction. We also study the problem of the existence and stability of singular dissipation-free periodic solutions for a free ball in the presence of friction forces. The issues of constructive realization of the proposed algorithms are discussed.

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.

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
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2012, vol. 17, no. 6, pp. 512-532
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.

Topological analysis of one integrable system related to the rolling of a ball over a sphere

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.

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.

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.

Rolling of a Homogeneous Ball over a Dynamically Asymmetric Sphere

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.

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.

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
pdf (298.75 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
pdf (486.45 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
pdf (398.78 Kb)
Hamiltonisation problem for non-holonomic systems, both integrable and non-integrable, is considered. This question is important for qualitative analysis of such systems and allows one to determine possible dynamical effects. The first part is devoted to the representation of integrable systems in a conformally Hamiltonian form. In the second part, the existence of a conformally Hamiltonian representation in a neighbourhood of a periodic solution is proved for an arbitrary measure preserving system (including integrable). General consructions are always illustrated by examples from non-holonomic mechanics.

Dynamic advection
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2010, vol. 6, no. 3, pp. 521-530
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
pdf (237.96 Kb)
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 (654.76 Kb)
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

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Abstract

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. We discuss Thomson, collinear and isosceles configurations of antipodal vortices and study their bifurcations.

Isomorphism and Hamilton representation of some nonholonomic systems

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.

We consider two problems from the rigid body dynamics and use new methods of stability and asymptotic behavior analysis for their solution. The first problem deals with motion of a rigid body in an unbounded volume of ideal fluid with zero vorticity. The second problem, having similar asymptotic behavior, is concerned with motion of a sleigh on an inclined plane. The equations of motion for the second problem are non-holonomic and exhibit some new features not typical for Hamiltonian systems. A comprehensive survey of references is given and new problems connected with falling motion of heavy bodies in fluid are proposed.

Rolling of a Non-homogeneous Ball Over a Sphere Without Slipping and Twisting
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2007, vol. 12, no. 2, pp. 153-159
Abstract
pdf (189.47 Kb)
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 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. We discuss Thomson, collinear and isosceles configurations of antipodal vortices and study their bifurcations.

Dynamic Interaction of Point Vortices and a Two-Dimensional Cylinder

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.

Dynamics of Two Interacting Circular Cylinders in Perfect Fluid

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
pdf (1.06 Mb)
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.

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.

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.

Abstract

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.

Abstract

We consider various generalizations of the Kepler problem to three-dimensional sphere $S^3$, (a compact space of constant curvature). In particular, these generalizations include addition of a spherical analogue of the magnetic monopole (the Poincaré–Appell system) and addition of a more complicated field which is a generalization of the MICZ-system. The mentioned systems are integrable superintegrable, and there exists the vector integral which is analogous to the Laplace–Runge–Lenz vector. We offer a classification of the motions and consider a trajectory isomorphism between planar and spatial motions. The presented results can be easily extended to Lobachevsky space $L^3$.

However, as applied to the vortex dynamics, it requires substantial modification. Reduction of four vortices on a sphere is given in more detail. We also use the Poincare surface-of-section technique to perform the reduction a four-vortex system on a sphere.

Chaos in a restricted problem of rotation of a rigid body with a fixed point
Russian Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics, 2005, vol. 1, no. 2, pp. 191-207
Abstract
pdf (650.7 Kb)
The paper deals with a transition to chaos in the phase-plane portrait of a restricted problem of rotation of a rigid body with a fixed point. Two interrelated mechanisms responsible for chaotisation have been indicated: 1) growth of the homoclinic structure and 2) development of cascades of period doubling bifurcations. On the zero level of the integral of areas, an adiabatic behavior of the system (as the energy tends to zero) has been noticed. Meander tori induced by the breakdown of the torsion property of the mapping have been found.

Abstract
pdf (401.63 Kb)
For the classical problem of motion of a rigid body about a fixed point with zero integral of areas, the paper presents a family of solutions which are periodic in the absolute space. Such solutions are known as choreographies. The family includes the famous Delaunay solution in the case of Kovalevskaya, some particular solutions in the Goryachev-Chaplygin case and Steklov’s solution. The «genealogy» of the solutions of the family, arising naturally 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 but with respect to a coordinate frame that rotates uniformly about the vertical (relative choreographies).

The circulations around the cylinders are assumed to be equal in magnitude and opposite in sign. Special cases of this system (the cylinders move along the line through their centers and the circulation around each cylinder is zero) are considered. A similar system of two interacting spheres was originally considered in classical works of Carl and Vilhelm Bjerknes, G. 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.

Moscow–Izhevsk: Institute of Computer Science, 2005, 576 pp.
Abstract
pdf (21.11 Mb)
In this book we discuss the main forms of equations of motion of rigid-body systems, such as motion of rigid bodies in potential fields, in fluid (Kirchhoff equation) and rigid bodies with fluid-filled cavities. All the systems considered in the book can be described within the framework of the Hamiltonian formalism. Almost all known integrable cases and methods of explicit integration are included. Compared to the previous volume, new sections dealing with non-integrability analysis and chaos in various problems of rigid body dynamics are added. Computer-based visualization of motion is widely used. Some results are obtained by the authors.

Dynamics of a circular cylinder interacting with point vortices

Abstract
pdf (210.01 Kb)
The paper studies the system of a rigid body interacting dynamically with point vortices in a perfect fluid. For arbitrary value of vortex strengths and circulation around the cylinder the system is shown to be Hamiltonian (the corresponding Poisson bracket structure is rather complicated). We also reduced the number of degrees of freedom of the system by two using the reduction by symmetry technique and performed a thorough qualitative analysis of the integrable system of a cylinder interacting with one vortex.

We consider some aspects of Hamiltonianicity of two problems of nonholonomic mechanics, namely, the Chaplygin's ball problem and the Veselova problem. Representations for these two problems have been found in the form of generalized Chaplygin systems, integrable with the method of reducing multiplier. We also specify the algebraic form of the Poisson brackets, with which, after appropriate time substitution, the equations of motion for the stated problems can be represented. We consider generalizations of the two stated problems and offer new realizations of nonholonomic constraints. Some nonholonomic systems are shown, which have the invariant measure and a sufcient number of rst integrals; for such systems, the question of Hamiltonianicity is still open, even after the time substitution.

We consider the problem of two interacting particles on a sphere. The potential of the interaction depends on the distance between the particles. The case of Newtonian-type potentials is studied in most detail. We reduce this system to a system with two degrees of freedom and give a number of remarkable periodic orbits. We also discuss integrability and stochastization of the motion.

Abstract
pdf (389.11 Kb)
We obtained new periodic solutions in the problems of three and four point vortices moving on a plane. In the case of three vortices, the system is reduced to a Hamiltonian system with one degree of freedom, and it is integrable. In the case of four vortices, the order is reduced to two degrees of freedom, and the system is not integrable. We present relative and absolute choreographies of three and four vortices of the same intensity which are periodic motions of vortices in some rotating and fixed frame of reference, where all the vortices move along the same closed curve. Similar choreographies have been recently obtained by C. Moore, A. Chenciner, and C. Simo for the $n$-body problem in celestial mechanics [6, 7, 17]. Nevertheless, the choreographies that appear in vortex dynamics have a number of distinct features.

Abstract
pdf (3.5 Mb)
The book is a collecton of recent and classical works of dynamics in spaces of constant curvature. The Kepler problem and its extentions, the two- and three-body problem and the rigid body dinamics in curved spaces are considered. Many classical works by W. Killing, H.Liebmann, etc. have been practically not available for a wide audience and almost forgotten. The recent papers collected here discuss stochasticity and integrability issues, various generalizations of some results from classical and celestial mechanics, and the Newton potential theory.
The book is for undergraduate and postgraduate students and specialists in dynamical systems. We hope that it will be interesting for scientific historians.

Strange Attractors in Rattleback Dynamics

Abstract
pdf (484.78 Kb)
This review is dedicated to the dynamics of the rattleback, a phenomenon with curious physical properties that is
studied in nonholonomic mechanics. All known analytical results are collected here, and some results of our numerical
simulation are presented. In particular, three-dimensional Poincare maps associated with dynamical systems are systematically investigated for the first time. It is shown that the loss of
stability of periodic and quasiperiodic solutions, which gives rise
to strange attractors, is typical of the three-dimensional maps related to rattleback dynamics. This explains some newly discovered properties of the rattleback related to the transition from regular to chaotic solutions at certain values of the physical parameters.

Abstract
pdf (605.38 Kb)
In the paper we consider modifications of the Hess integral suitable for various forms of the equations of motion for rigid body. This integral occurs due to some additional symmetry properties of the equations of motion. Moreover, we discuss the general conditions under which the integral exists. Assuming that these conditions are satisfied, we discuss the reduction of the order of the equations, their explicit integration and a qualitative analysis of motion. For the first time, the paper indicates new counterparts of the Hess case for the problem of a gyroscope fixed in a gimbal suspension and for Chaplygin's equations describing the motion of a heavy rigid body in an ideal fluid.

In the paper, classical Chaplygin's problem on an unbalanced ball that is rolling without slipping on a plane is considered. Using numerical simulations, we have shown the possibility of mixing integrable non-holonomic systems on invariant tori. Therein lies the obstacle for this system to be Hamiltonian. It should be noted, that, nevertheless, in such systems there is an invariant measure and conservation of energy.

Abstract

The problem of rolling motion without slipping of an unbalanced ball on 1) an arbitrary ellipsoid and 2) an ellipsoid of revolution is considered. In his famous treatise E. Routh showed that the problem of rolling motion of a body on a surface of revolution even in the presence of axisymmetrical potential fields is integrable. In case 1, we present a new integral of motion. New solutions expressed in elementary functions are found in case 2.

The rolling motion of a ball on a surface. New integrals and hierarchy of dynamics
Regular and Chaotic Dynamics, 2002, vol. 7, no. 2, pp. 201-219
Abstract
pdf (628.29 Kb)
The paper is concerned with the problem on rolling of a homogeneous ball on an arbitrary surface. New cases when the problem is solved by quadratures are presented. The paper also indicates a special case when an additional integral and invariant measure exist. Using this case, we obtain a nonholonomic generalization of the Jacobi problem for the inertial motion of a point on an ellipsoid. For a ball rolling, it is also shown that on an arbitrary cylinder in the gravity field the ball's motion is bounded and, on the average, it does not move downwards. All the results of the paper considerably expand the results obtained by E. Routh in XIX century.

Abstract
pdf (784.15 Kb)
In this paper we study the cases of existence of an invariant measure, additional first integrals, and a Poisson structure in the problem of rigid body's rolling without sliding on a plane and a sphere. The problem of rigid body's motion on a plane was studied by S.A. Chaplygin, P. Appel, D. Korteweg. They showed that the equations of motion are reduced to a second-order linear differential equation in the case when the surface of the dynamically symmetrical body is a surface of revolution. These results were partially generalized by P. Woronetz, who studied the motion of a body of revolution and the motion of round disk with sharp edge on a sphere. In both cases the systems are Euler–Jacobi integrable and have additional integrals and invariant measure. It can be shown that by an appropriate change of time (determined by reducing multiplier), the reduced system is a Hamiltonian one. Here we consider some particular cases when the integrals and the invariant measure can be presented as finite algebraic expressions. We also consider a generalized problem of rolling of a dynamically nonsymmetric Chaplygin ball. The results of investigations are summarized in tables to illustrate the hierarchy of existence of various tensor invariants: invariant measure, integrals, and Poisson structure.

Abstract
pdf (183.63 Kb)
The main directions in the development of the nonholonomic dynamics are briefly considered in this paper. The first direction is connected with the general formalizm of the equations of dynamics that differs from the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods of the equations of motion's construction. The second direction, substantially more important for dynamics, includes investigations concerning the analysis of the specific nonholonomic problems. We also point out rather promising direction in development of nonholonomic systems that is connected with intensive use of the modern computer-aided methods.

This form of equations is recently developed and we can use it for the description of rigid body motions in specific force fields, and for the study of different problems of quantum mechanics. In addition we present new invariant relations in the considered problems.

In this paper we introduce a new nonlinear Poisson bracket in the problem of rolling motion of a Chaplygin's ball. Thus, upon some change of time, the equations of motion become Hamiltonian. We have also established that the trajectories of this system are isomorphic to the trajectories of the Braden system which describes the motion of a point on a two-dimensional sphere in a potential field; using the isomorphism, we have shown that in the Chaplygin problem the variables are separable.

Abstract

Generalizations of the Kovalevskaya, Chaplygin, Goryachev–Chaplygin and Bogoyavlensky systems on a bundle are considered in this paper. Moreover, a method of introduction of separating variables and action-angle variables is described. Another integration method for the Kovalevskaya top on the bundle is found. This method uses a coordinate transformation that reduces the Kovalevskaya system to the Neumann system. The Kolosov analogy is considered. A generalization of a recent Gaffet system to the bundle of Poisson brackets is obtained at the end of the paper.

Here the fundamental forms of the equations of motion for rigid body are discussed. These involve motion in potential fields and in fluid (the Kirchhoff equations), motion of a body with cavities filled with fluid. Conditions under which the reduction of the order of these equations is possible and cyclic variables exist are given. In addition, the book collects almost all known to date integrable cases along with methods of their explicit integration. Throughout the book results of computer simulations are copiously presented to help visualize motions' peculiarities. Most results discussed in the book are obtained by the authors.

1.Classificaton of the algebra of $n$ vortices on a plane
2.Solvable problems of vortex dynamics
3.Algebraization and reduction in a three-body problem
The work [13] introduces a naive description of dynamics of point vortices on a plane in terms of variables of distances and areas which generate Lie–Poisson structure. Using this approach a qualitative description of dynamics of point vortices on a plane and a sphere is obtained in the works [14,15]. In this paper we consider more formal constructions of the general problem of n vortices on a plane and a sphere. The developed methods of algebraization are also applied to the classical problem of the reduction in the three-body problem.

Poisson Structures and Lie Algebras in Hamiltonian Mechanics

Abstract
pdf (5.91 Mb)
The book is about Poisson structures and their application to various problems of Hamiltonian mechanics arising in a number of areas, such as dynamics of rigid body, celestial mechanics, the theory of vortices, cosmological models. The equations governing the motion of such systems can be written in a convenient polynomial (algebraic) form. This form is in close connection with the possibility of representing the equations of motion as a set of Hamiltonian equations with linear Poisson structure associated with some Lie algebra. The authors also discuss nonlinear Poisson structures defined by infinite-dimensional Lie algebras and consider most typical situations in which such structures occur. The equations obtained are studied using the Painleve–Kovalevskaya method. Also the book presents some new integrable cases and establishes isomorphisms between integrable problems.

Abstract

In this article we considered the integrable problems of three vortices on a plane and sphere for noncompact case. We investigated explicitly the problems of a collapse and scattering of vortices and obtained the conditions of realization. We completed the bifurcation analysis and investigated the dependence of stability in linear approximation and frequency of rotation in relative coordinates for collinear and Thomson's configurations from value of a full moment and indicated the geometric interpretation for characteristic situations. We constructed a phase portrait and geometric projection for an integrable configuration of four vortices on a plane.

Abstract

In the present paper a description of a problem of point vortices on a plane and a sphere in the "internal" variables is discussed. The hamiltonian equations of motion of vortices on a plane are built on the Lie–Poisson algebras, and in the case of vortices on a sphere on the quadratic Jacobi algebras. The last ones are obtained by deformation of the corresponding linear algebras. Some partial solutions of the systems of three and four vortices are considered. Stationary and static vortex configurations are found.

Kovalevskaya's method in rigid body dynamics

Abstract
pdf (701.12 Kb)
An example from the field of rigid body dynamics, possessing a natural physical justification, is presented. The behaviour of the solutions of the equations of motion in the real domain, whatever the initial data, is regular; nevertheless, depending on the values of a certain control parameter, the solution of the system may branch in the complex time plane, and the system will have multi-valued first integrals. A denumerable sequence of single-valued polynomial integrals of arbitrarily high even degree is found (unlike Kovalevskaya's case, in which the degree of the first integral of the Euler–Poisson equations is four). As an extension, a system from non-holonomic mechanics is considered.

Abstract

In the paper the equations of motion of a rigid body in the Hamiltonian form on the subalgebra of algebra $e(4)$ are written. With the help of the algebraic methods a number of new isomorphisms in dynamics is established. We consider the lowering of the order as the process of decreasing rank of the Poisson structure with the algebraic point of view and indicate the possibility of arising the nonlinear Poisson brackets at this reduction as well.

Abstract

Taking a classical problem of motion of a rigid body in a gravitational field as an example, we consider Feigenbaum's script for transition to stochasticity. Numerical results are obtained using Andoyer-Deprit's canonical variables. We calculate universal constants describing "doubling tree" self-duplication scaling. These constants are equal for all dynamical systems, which can be reduced to the study of area-preserving mappings of a plan onto itself. We show that stochasticity in Euler-Poisson equations can progress according to Feigenbaum's script under some restrictions on the parameters of our system.

Necessary and Sufficient Conditions of Kirchhoff Equation Integrability

Abstract
pdf (809.02 Kb)
The problem of motion of a 1-connected solid on interia in an infinite volume of irrotational ideal incompressible liquid in Kirchhoff setting [1-3] is considered in the paper. As it is known, the equations of this problem are structurally analogous to motion equations for the classical problem of motion of a heavy solid around a fixed point. In general case these equations are not integrable as well, and one more additional integral is needed for their integrability. Classical cases of integrability were found by A. Klebsch, V.A. Steklov, A.M. Lyapunov, S.A. Chaplygin in the previous century. It has been shown in [4] that Kirchhoff problems are not integrable in general case, and necessary conditions of integrability, which in some cases are sufficient, have been found there. In the present paper necessary and sufficient conditions of Kirchhoff equations integrability from the view-point of existence of additional analytical and single-valued integrals (in a complex meaning) are investigated.
Analytical results are illustrated with a numerical construction of Poincare mapping and of perturbed asymptotic surfaces (separatrices). Transversal intersection of separatrices may serve as a numerical proof of non-integrability, for great values of pertubing parameter as well.

Abstract

In the frame of this work the Kovalevski exponents (KE) have been found for various problems arising in rigid body dynamics and vortex dynamics. The relations with the parameters of the system are shown at which KE are integers. As it is shown earlier the power of quasihomogeneous integral in quasihomogeneous systems of differential equations is equal to one of IKs. That let us to find the power of an additional integral for the dynamical systems studied in this work and then find it in the explicit form for one of the classic problems of rigid body dynamics. This integral has an arbitrary even power relative to phase variables and the highest complexity among all the first integrals found before in classic dynamics (in Kovalevski case the power of the missing first integral is equal to four). The example of a many-valued integral in one of the dynamic systems is given.

Abstract

In the paper two integrable systems are considered. These systems are modifications of the classical Brun (Clebsh) problems and of the Chaplygin problem, that is, the right-hand sides of the Poisson equations are multiplied by -1. Integrability of some other systems that can be obtained from these classical systems via modifications of more general type is discussed.

Abstract

In this paper we present analytical and numerical data on nonintegrability of the equation of motion and the stochastic behaviour of trajectories in a range of classical and modern problems of dynamics of rigid body. There are considered analytical methods of proof of non-integrability in the systems close to integrable and their relation with data of numerical simulation. The observed spliting of separatrixes leads to absence of the additional first integrals and formation of stochastic layers within chaos in dynamics of rigid body.

A finite-dimensional system of equations, corresponding to the classical Yang–Mills equations, is investigated. In the three-component case, the Yang–Mills equations are studied both analytically and numerically. A computer-based proof of nonintegrability of these equations is given. A close relation between the nonintegrability and the presence of stochastic regions in the phase space is marked.

We study the integrability of the Kirchoff equations by expanding perturbations in a Fourier series in the angle-variables. Conditions for an additional single-valued integral to exist are investigated numerically. Considering a perturbed Steklov's case, we have shown, by the use of numerical simulations, that the system exhibits stochastic and non-integrable behavior.
