Title: Controllability of Lagrangian systems
Detail: University of New Brunswick Department of Mathematics and Statistics, 1996/08/28

In this talk we discuss the role of affine connections in control theory for mechanical systems. In the course of our investigations, we encountered a symmetric product for vector fields on a manifold with an affine connection and we provide a geometric interpretation of this product.
