Conference Description:

Geometric mechanics is an interpretation of classical mechanics that relies on contemporary geometric techniques, such as Riemannian, symplectic, and Poisson geometry, Lie groups, fiber bundles, nonintegrable distributions, differential forms and exterior differential calculus, and global analysis, in the theoretical development of the subject and in studying specific mechanical systems. Geometric mechanics has become a useful tool by itself and as a foundation of control of nonlinear physical systems, robotics, intelligent manufacturing, and structurepreserving computational mechanics. The conference will focus on current and future trends in geometric mechanics and control, foster international collaboration, and bring graduate students to the field.
