Integrability in Mechanics and Geometry: Theory and Computations
Month: June 2015
Date: June 1--5
Name: Integrability in Mechanics and Geometry: Theory and Computations
Location: Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM), Providence, Rhode Island.
This workshop focuses on topics at the interface of classical mechanics, differential geometry, and computer experiments. The directions of current research to be explored at the workshop include the study of invariants and complete integrability of geometrically motivated differential equations (in particular, vehicle motion, tire track geometry, and smoke ring equations), sub-Riemannian geometry, geometric control, nonholonomic systems (such as e.g., bicycle stability and nonholonomic methods in billiard problems), computational methods in mechanics and dynamics (including geometric integrators, biological applications, etc.).
