Abstract

Here we consider mechanical systems with their configuration described by the in general non-minimal coordinates q1,q2,…,qn which we arrange in a column matrix as q := (q1,q2,…,qn)T The system is subjected to constraints of the form
$${{c}_{i}}(q,\dot{q},t) = 0,i = 1,2, \ldots ,m$$
(1)
which we also write as
$$c(q,\dot{q},t): = {{({{c}_{1}},{{c}_{2}}, \ldots {{c}_{m}})}^{T}} = 0$$
