Superintegrability of left-invariant sub-Riemannian structures on unimodular three-dimensional Lie groups

Control Theory


We consider left-invariant sub-Riemannian problems on three-dimensional unimodular Lie groups. We show that the Hamiltonian system of the Pontryagin maximum principle for such problems is Liouville integrable and even superintegrable (i.e., has four independent integrals, three of which are in involution).
