Numerical integration of constrained Hamiltonian systems using Dirac brackets

  title={Numerical integration of constrained Hamiltonian systems using Dirac brackets},
  author={Werner M. Seiler},
  journal={Math. Comput.},
We study the numerical properties of the equations of motion of constrained systems derived with Dirac brackets. This formulation is compared with one based on the extended Hamiltonian. As concrete examples, a pendulum in Cartesian coordinates and a chain molecule are treated.
