Abstract : The work during the period of the grant included analysis of the stability and instability of mechanical and aerospace systems in the presence of dissipation; work on the geometry, control and stabilization of mechanical systems with nonholonomic constraints; work on the solution of various optimal control problems arising in mechanics; work on the solutions and geometry of partial differential equations describing mechanical and fluid systems; and work on the stabilization of systems modelling anti-corrosion processes.
