Title: Geometric first-order controllability conditions for affine connection control systems (6 pages)
Detail: 40th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, Orlando, FL, 2001/12/14

Strong conditions, involving first-order symmetric products, are given for controllability of affine connection control systems. The conditions generalise, at the first-order level, earlier conditions for affine connection control systems, and involve the use of a vector-valued quadratic form as the essential ingredient in the statement of the results.
