Title: Mechanical systems on homogeneous spaces (6 pages)
Detail: Department of Mathematics & Statistics, Queen's University, 1998/11/06

The structure of invariant mechanical systems whose configuration space is a homogeneous space is explored. This is presented as a prelude to "singular" reduction for mechanical systems where a Lie group acts on a configuration space with nontrivial isotropy.
