Some recent generalizations of the classical rigid body systems. (English) Zbl 1378.70007
From the text: Some recent generalizations of the classical rigid body systems are reviewed. The cases presented include dynamics of a heavy rigid body fixed at a point in three-dimensional space, the Kirchhoff equations of motion of a rigid body in an ideal incompressible fluid as well as their higher-dimensional generalizations.
The paper is organized as follows. The basic facts about three-dimensional motion of a rigid body are presented in Sect. 2. In the same Section, the basic steps of the algebro-geometric integration procedure for the Hess-Appel’rot case of motion of three-dimensional rigid body are given. A recent approach to the Kowalevski integration procedure is given in Sect. 3. The basic facts of higher-dimensional rigid body dynamics are presented in Sect. 4. The same Section provides the definition of the isoholomorphic systems, such as the Lagrange bitop and \(n\)-dimensional Hess-Appel’rot systems. The importance of the isoholomorphic systems has been underlined by S. Grushevsky and I. Krichever [Duke Math. J. 152, No. 2, 317–371 (2010; Zbl 1217.14022)]. In Sect. 5 we review the classical Grioli precessions and present its quite recent higher-dimensional generalizations. The four-dimensional generalizations of the Kirchhoff and Chaplygin cases of motion of a rigid body in an ideal fluid are given in Sect. 6.
