Recently, a method to dynamically define a divergence function D for a given statistical manifold \((\mathcal {M}\,,g\,,T)\) by means of the Hamilton-Jacobi theory associated with a suitable Lagrangian function \(\mathfrak {L}\) on \(T\mathcal {M}\) has been proposed. Here we will review this construction and lay the basis for an inverse problem where we assume the divergence function D to be known and we look for a Lagrangian function \(\mathfrak {L}\) for which D is a complete solution of the… 

Reviewing the geometric Hamilton–Jacobi theory concerning Jacobi and Leibniz identities

In this survey, we review the classical Hamilton–Jacobi theory from a geometric point of view in different geometric backgrounds. We propose a Hamilton–Jacobi equation for different geometric

Geometric Hamilton–Jacobi theory for systems with external forces

In this paper, we develop a Hamilton-Jacobi theory for forced Hamiltonian and Lagrangian systems. We study the complete solutions, particularize for Rayleigh systems and present some examples.

Generalized potential functions in differential geometry and information geometry

Potential functions can be used for generating potentials of relevant geometric structures for a Riemannian manifold such as the Riemannian metric and affine connections. We study whether this

Hamilton–Jacobi theory for contact systems: autonomous and non-autonomous for the in time-independent contact Hamiltonian

In this paper we obtain two Hamilton–Jacobi equations for time dependent contact Hamiltonian systems. In these systems there is a dissipation parameter and the fact of obtaining two equations reflects

Geometric Hamilton-Jacobi theory and integrability for nonholonomic and forced hybrid systems

. A hybrid system is a system whose dynamics are controlled by a mixture of both continuous and discrete transitions. The geometric framework for the Hamilton–Jacobi theory is developed to study this

Hamilton-Jacobi theory and integrability for autonomous and non-autonomous contact systems

In this paper, we study the integrability of contact Hamiltonian systems, both time-dependent and independent. In order to do so, we construct a Hamilton–Jacobi theory for these systems following two

Lagrangian description of Heisenberg and Landau–von Neumann equations of motion

An explicit Lagrangian description is given for the Heisenberg equation on the algebra of operators of a quantum system, and for the Landau-von Neumann equation on the manifold of quantum states



Hamilton-Jacobi approach to Potential Functions in Information Geometry

The search for a potential function $S$ allowing to reconstruct a given metric tensor $g$ and a given symmetric covariant tensor $T$ on a manifold $\mathcal{M}$ is formulated as the Hamilton-Jacobi

A geometrical approach to the Hamilton-Jacobi form of dynamics and its generalizations

The paper under review is devoted to the task of expressing the principles of classical dynamics in a coordinate-free manner and aims to show that the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism is as complete as the

Geometric Hamilton-Jacobi theory

The Hamilton–Jacobi problem is revisited bearing in mind the consequences arising from a possible bi-Hamiltonian structure. The problem is formulated on the tangent bundle for Lagrangian systems in

Metric on the space of quantum states from relative entropy. Tomographic reconstruction

In the framework of quantum information geometry, we derive, from quantum relative Tsallis entropy, a family of quantum metrics on the space of full rank, N level quantum states, by means of a

Information Geometry and Its Applications

This is the first comprehensive book on information geometry, written by the founder of the field. It begins with an elementary introduction to dualistic geometry and proceeds to a wide range of

Dynamics and symmetry for constrained systems: a geometrical analysis

This is a very interesting and well-written expository paper on the Hamiltonian formulation for constrained systems and its symmetry from the geometrical point of view. Coordinate-free and

Variational Principles in Mechanics

The recognition that minimizing an integral function through variational methods (as in the last chapters) leads to the second-order differential equations of Euler-Lagrange for the minimizing
