# A unifying mechanical equation with applications to non-holonomic constraints and dissipative phenomena

@article{Minguzzi2014AUM, title={A unifying mechanical equation with applications to non-holonomic constraints and dissipative phenomena}, author={Ettore Minguzzi}, journal={The Journal of Geometric Mechanics}, year={2014}, volume={7}, pages={473-482} }

A mechanical covariant equation is introduced which retains all the effectingness of the Lagrange equation while being able to describe, in a unified way, other phenomena including friction, non-holonomic constraints and energy radiation (Lorentz-Abraham-Dirac force equation).
A quantization rule adapted to the dissipative degrees of freedom is proposed which does not pass through the variational formulation.
