Integrable systems in the dynamics on the tangent bundle of a two-dimensional sphere



A mechanical system whose phase space is the tangent bundle of a two-dimensional sphere is studied. The potential nonconservative systems describing a geodesic flow are classified. A multiparameter family of systems possessing a complete set of transcendental first integrals expressed in terms of finite combinations of elementary functions is found. Some examples illustrating the spatial dynamics of a rigid body interacting with a medium are discussed.
