On destabilizing effects of two fundamental non-conservative forces

  title={On destabilizing effects of two fundamental non-conservative forces},
  author={Rouslan Krechetnikov and Jerrold E. Marsden},
In this work we discuss the instabilities in mechanical systems caused by two fundamentally different non-conservative forces, referred to as dissipative and positional forces, each of which may lead to energy dissipation. One of the objectives of this discussion is to recall and to put into the context of current research some of the important classical results by Thomson–Tait–Chetayev and Merkin, which are under-appreciated nowadays: many new examples, e.g. radiation in Hamiltonian systems… CONTINUE READING
