Cosymplectic reduction of constrained systems with symmetry
F. Cantrijn, J. CortÚs
Reports on Mathematical Physics 49 (2/3) (2002), 167-182


A general model for time-dependent constrained systems is proposed within the framework of cosymplectic geometry. The model covers, in particular, the case of time-dependent nonholonomic mechanical systems. The theory of reduction of these systems in the presence of symmetry is discussed.
