Relativistic mechanics in a general setting

  title={Relativistic mechanics in a general setting},
Relativistic mechanics on an arbitrary manifold is formulated in the terms of jets of its one-dimensional submanifolds. A generic relativistic Lagrangian is constructed. Relativistic mechanics on a pseudo-Riemannian manifold is particularly considered. 
Lagrangian dynamics of submanifolds. Relativistic mechanics
Geometric formulation of Lagrangian relativistic mechanics in the terms of jets of one-dimensional submanifolds is generalized to Lagrangian theory of submanifolds of arbitrary dimension.


Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics of submanifolds
Submanifolds of a manifold are described as sections of a certain fiber bundle that enables one to consider their Lagrangian and (polysymplectic) Hamiltonian dynamics as that of a particular

New Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Methods in Field Theory
This work incorporates three modern aspects of mathematical physics: the jet methods in differntial geometry, the Lagrangian formalism on jet manifolds and the multimomentum approach to the
Hamiltonian time-dependent mechanics
The usual formulation of time-dependent mechanics implies a given splitting Y=R×M of an event space Y. This splitting, however, is broken by any time-dependent transformation, including
Geometrical Setting of Time-Dependent Regular Systems:. Alternative Models.
We analyse exhaustively the geometric formulations of the time-dependent regular dynamical systems, both the Hamiltonian and the Lagrangian formalisms. We study the equivalence between the different
