Noether's theory of vacco dynamics

  • Zhang Jie-fang


In this paper, we first study the latent relation between the conservative quantity and the symmetry of nonholonomic dynamical systems without any additional restrictive conditions to its virtual displacement, and then establish Noether's theorem and Noether's inverse theorem of Vacco dynamics. Lastly, we give two examples to illustrate the application of results of this paper.
