Steady Rigid-Body Motions in a Central Gravitational Field
In recent work, the exact dynamic equations for the motion of a finite rigid body in a central gravitational field were shown to be of Hamiltonian form with a noncanonical structure. In this paper, the notion of relative ...
Hamiltonian Dynamics of a Rigid Body in a Central Gravitational Field
This paper concerns the dynamics of a rigid body moving under the influence of a central gravitational field. Explicit account is taken of effects arising because of the finite extent of the body. The hamiltonian framework ...
