GCS - Geometry, compatibility and structure preservation in computational differential equations


In this talk we discuss a geometric approach to certain optimal control
problems and discuss the relationship of the solutions of these problem
to some classical integrable dynamical systems and their generalizations.
We consider the
so-called Clebsch optimal control problem and its relationship
to Lie group actions on manifolds. The integrable systems discussed include
the rigid body equations, geodesic flows on the ellipsoid, flows
on Stiefel manifolds, and the Toda lattice
flows. We discuss the Hamiltonian structure of these systems and relate
our work to some work of Moser. We also discuss the link to discrete dynamics
and symplectic integration.
