      We show that the contact dynamics obtained from the Herglotz variational principle can be described as a constrained nonholonomic or vakonomic ordinary Lagrangian system depending on a dissipative variable with an adequate ...
    • Higher-order contact mechanics 

      De León, Manuel; Gaset Rifà, Jordi; Lainz Valcázar, Manuel; Muñoz Lecanda, Miguel Carlos; Román Roy, Narciso (Elsevier, 2021-02-01)

      We present a complete theory of higher-order autonomous contact mechanics, which allows us to describe higher-order dynamical systems with dissipation. The essential tools for the theory are the extended higher-order tangent ...
    • Unified Lagrangian-Hamiltonian formalism for contact systems 

      De León, Manuel; Gaset Rifà, Jordi; Lainz Valcázar, Manuel; Rivas Guijarro, Xavier; Román Roy, Narciso (2020-06-23)
      Article
      Open Access
      We present a unified geometric framework for describing both the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms of contact autonomous mechanical systems, which is based on the approach of the pioneering work of R. Skinner and R. ...
