A BF-regularization of a nonstationary two-body problem under the Maneff perturbing potential.

Ignacio Aparicio, Luis Floría (1997)

Extracta Mathematicae

The process of transforming singular differential equations into regular ones is known as regularization. We are specially concerned with the treatment of certain systems of differential equations arising in Analytical Dynamics, in such a way that, accordingly, the regularized equations of motion will be free of singularities.

A. C. Clarke's space odyssey and Newton's law of gravity

Bartoň, Stanislav, Renčín, Lukáš (2017)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

In his famous tetralogy, Space Odyssey, A. C. Clarke called the calculation of a motion of a mass point in the gravitational field of the massive cuboid a classical problem of gravitational mechanics. This article presents a proposal for a solution to this problem in terms of Newton's theory of gravity. First we discuss and generalize Newton's law of gravitation. We then compare the gravitational field created by the cuboid -- monolith, with the gravitational field of the homogeneous sphere. This...

A continuation method for motion-planning problems

Yacine Chitour (2006)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We apply the well-known homotopy continuation method to address the motion planning problem (MPP) for smooth driftless control-affine systems. The homotopy continuation method is a Newton-type procedure to effectively determine functions only defined implicitly. That approach requires first to characterize the singularities of a surjective map and next to prove global existence for the solution of an ordinary differential equation, the Wazewski equation. In the context of the MPP, the aforementioned...

A discrete contact model for crowd motion

Bertrand Maury, Juliette Venel (2011)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

The aim of this paper is to develop a crowd motion model designed to handle highly packed situations. The model we propose rests on two principles: we first define a spontaneous velocity which corresponds to the velocity each individual would like to have in the absence of other people. The actual velocity is then computed as the projection of the spontaneous velocity onto the set of admissible velocities (i.e. velocities which do not violate the non-overlapping constraint). We describe here the...

A theorem for rigid motions in Post-Newtonian celestial mechanics.

J.M. Gambi, P. Zamorano, P. Romero, M.L. García del Pino (2003)

RACSAM

The velocity field distribution for rigid motions in the Born?s sense applied to Post-Newtonian Relativistic Celestial Mechanics is examined together with its compatibility with the Newtonian distribution.
