The conservation law of nonholonomic system of second-order non-Chetave’s type in event space

  • Fang Jian-hui


The conservation law of nonholonomic system of second-order non-Chataev’s type in event space is studied. The Jourdain’s principle in event space is presented. The invariant condition of the Jourdain’s principle under infinitesimal transformation is given by introducing Jourdain’s generators in event space. Then the conservation law of the system in event space is obtained under certain conditions. Finally a calculating example is given.

Key words
