Retraction maps: a seed of geometric integrators

  title={Retraction maps: a seed of geometric integrators},
  author={Ma Lin-an and David Mart{\'i}n de Diego},
The classical notion of retraction map used to approximate geodesics is extended and rigorously defined to become a powerful tool to construct geometric integrators and it is called discretization map. Using the geometry of the tangent and cotangent bundles, we are able to tangently and cotangent lift such a map so that these lifts inherit the same properties as the original one and they continue to be discretization maps. In particular, the cotangent lift of a discretization map is a natural… 
Presymplectic integrators for optimal control problems via retraction maps
Retractions maps are used to define a discretization of the tangent bundle of the configuration manifold as two copies of the configuration manifold where the dynamics take place. Such discretization
Geometric Methods for Adjoint Systems
It is shown that the adjoint variational quadratic conservation laws, which are key to adjoint sensitivity analysis, arise from (pre)symplecticity of such adjoint systems, and structure-preserving numerical methods for such systems using Galerkin Hamiltonian variational integrators (Leok and Zhang) are developed.


Projection-like Retractions on Matrix Manifolds
This theory offers a framework in which previously proposed retractions can be analyzed, as well as a toolbox for constructing new ones, for submanifolds of Euclidean spaces.
Energy-preserving methods on Riemannian manifolds
It is shown how methods of higher order can be constructed via a collocation-like approach and generalizations of well-known discrete gradient methods, such as the average vector field method and the Itoh--Abe method are obtained.
Hamilton-Pontryagin Integrators on Lie Groups
In this thesis structure-preserving time integrators for mechanical systems whose configuration space is a Lie group are derived from a Hamilton-Pontryagin (HP) variational principle. In addition to

In this paper, we will give a rigorous construction of the exact discrete Lagrangian formulation associated to a continuous Lagrangian problem. Moreover, we work in the setting of Lie groupoids and
The dynamic interpolation problem: On Riemannian manifolds, Lie groups, and symmetric spaces
We consider the dynamic interpolation problem for nonlinear control systems modeled by second-order differential equations whose configuration space is a Riemannian manifoldM. In this problem we are
Hamilton-Pontryagin Integrators on Lie Groups: Introduction and Structure-Preserving Properties
In this paper structure-preserving time-integrators for rigid body-type mechanical systems are derived from a discrete Hamilton-Pontryagin variational principle. From this principle one can derive a
Discrete Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics on Lie groupoids
The purpose of this paper is to describe geometrically discrete Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics on Lie groupoids. From a variational principle we derive the discrete Euler–Lagrange equations and
Higher Order Variational Integrators: a polynomial approach
A family of variational integrators are developed which are referred to as symplectic Galerkin schemes in contrast to symplectic partitioned Runge-Kutta schemes, which are easily applicable to optimal control problems based on mechanical systems.
Variational Integrators and the Newmark Algorithm for Conservative and Dissipative Mechanical Systems
Analytically, it is demonstrated analytically that the classical Newmark family as well as related integration algorithms are variational in the sense of the Veselov formulation of discrete mechanics.
