Abstract

The text material of the present chapter is designed to be a more or less selfcont ained introduction to analytical mechanics expressed in an invariant form that is not connected to any privileged coordinate system. To accomplish this goal we turn first to the Lagrange-D’Alembert differential variational principle, whose applications are very wide and encompass holonomic and nonholonomic dynamical systems and also conservative and purely nonconservative systems as well. The elements of this part of contemporary analytical mechanics in fact, constitute the content of this chapter.
