Controlling a submerged rigid body : a geometric analysis
Chyba, Monique, Haberkorn, Thomas, Smith, Ryan N., & Wilkens, George R. (2007) Controlling a submerged rigid body : a geometric analysis. Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences : Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Methods for Nonlinear Control 2006, 366, pp. 375-385.
In this paper we analyze the equations of motion of a submerged rigid body. Our motivation is based on recent developments done in trajectory design for this problem. Our goal is to relate some properties of singular extremals to the existence of decoupling vector fields. The ideas displayed in this paper can be viewed as a starting point to a geometric formulation of the trajectory design problem for mechanical systems with potential and external forces.
