These equations differing from Lagrange’s equations by introducing quasi-velocities instead of the generalised velocities, were derived by Boltzmann [13] and Hamel [35] at approximately the same time. It was Hamel who suggested the above name for these equations. The equations of motion used by Voronets [91] also deal with the quasi-velocities, however their form differs slightly from the Euler-Lagrange equations.
