Hamels Formalism for Infinite-Dimensional Mechanical Systems
Splitting up the configuration and velocity measurements was pioneered by Euler in 1750s in his study of the dynamics of rigid body and fluid. This use of nonmaterial velocity influenced greatly the development of mechanics. In 1904, Hamel extended this approach from the rigid body setting to arbitrary mechanical systems with finite number of degrees of freedom. This talk will review recent development of Hamels ideas in relation to continuum mechanics.
