Abstract

In this paper, a method to study the stability of nonholonomic systems with respect to partial variables is given and several stability theorems of nonholonomic systems with respect to partial variables are obtained. Moreover, a relationship between the stability of a nonholonomic system with respect to all variables and that to partial variables is obtained.

Key words

nonholonomic system stability with respect to partial variables constraint manifold
