Time-dependent Hamiltonian mechanics on a locally conformal symplectic manifold

  title={Time-dependent Hamiltonian mechanics on a locally conformal symplectic manifold},
  author={Orlando Ragnisco and Cristina Sard{\'o}n and Marcin Zajkac},
In this paper we aim at presenting a concise but also comprehensive study of time-dependent (tdependent) Hamiltonian dynamics on a locally conformal symplectic (lcs) manifold. We present a generalized geometric theory of canonical transformations and formulate a time-dependent geometric Hamilton-Jacobi theory on lcs manifolds. In contrast to previous papers concerning locally conformal symplectic manifolds, here the introduction of the time dependency brings out interesting geometric properties… 



On locally conformal symplectic manifolds of the first kind

Contact Hamiltonian systems

In this paper, we study Hamiltonian systems on contact manifolds, which is an appropriate scenario to discuss dissipative systems. We show how the dissipative dynamics can be interpreted as a

On locally conformal almost Kähler manifolds

In the first section of this note, we discuss locally conformal symplectic manifolds, which are differentiable manifoldsV2n endowed with a nondegenerate 2-form Ω such thatdΩ=θ ∧ Ω for some closed

Locally conformally symplectic and Kähler geometry

The goal of this note is to give an introduction to locally conformally symplectic and Kahler geometry. In particular, Sections 1 and 3 aim to provide the reader with enough mathematical background

Contact pairs and locally conformally symplectic structures

We discuss a correspondence between certain contact pairs on the one hand, and certain locally conformally symplectic forms on the other. In particular, we characterize these structures through

Cosymplectic and contact structures for time-dependent and dissipative Hamiltonian systems

In this paper, we apply the geometric Hamilton–Jacobi theory to obtain solutions of classical hamiltonian systems that are either compatible with a cosymplectic or a contact structure. As it is well

On the Group of Diffeomorphisms Preserving a Locally Conformal Symplectic Structure

The automorphism group of a locally conformal symplectic structure is studied. It is shown that this group possesses essential features of the symplectomorphism group. By using a special type of

Locally conformal cosymplectic manifolds and time-dependent Hamiltonian systems

We show that locally conformal cosymplectic manifolds may be seen as generalized phase spaces of time-dependent Hamiltonian systems. Thus we extend the results of I. Vaisman for the time-dependent
