Title: The symmetric product in geometry, mechanics, and control theory (22 pages)
Detail: New Mexico State University Department of Mathematical Sciences, 1996/02/20

In this talk we present the relationship between the symmetric product and the notion of geodesic invariance of a distribution. We also discuss various applications of these notions in geometry, mechanics, and control of mechanical systems.
