# Geometry and dynamics of Engel structures

@article{Mitsumatsu2018GeometryAD, title={Geometry and dynamics of Engel structures}, author={Yoshihiko Mitsumatsu}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2018} }

The aim of this paper is to extend basic understanding of Engel structures through developing geometric constructions which are canonical to a certain degree and the dynamics of Cauchy characteristics in the transverse spaces which may exhibit elliptic, parabolic, or hyperbolic natures in typical cases.
