The Lagrangian formalism The principles of Mechanics were stated by the great English mathematician Isaac Newton (1642–1727) in his book Philosophia Naturalis Principia Mathematica published in 1687 [27].

The Lagrangian formalism The principles of Mechanics were stated by the great English mathematician Isaac Newton (1642–1727) in his book Philosophia Naturalis Principia Mathematica published in 1687 [27]. On this basis, a little more than a century later, Joseph Louis Lagrange (1736–1813) in his book M´ecanique analytique [16] derived the equations (today known as the Euler-Lagrange equations) which govern the motion of a mechanical system made of any number of material points or rigid material bodies, eventually submitted to external forces, interacting between themselves by very general forces.

The conﬁguration space and the space of kinematic states of the system are, respectively, a smooth n-dimensional manifold N and its tangent bundle TN, which is 2n-dimensional. In local coordinates a conﬁguration of the system is determined by the n coordinates x1, . . . , xn of a point in N, and a kinematic state by the 2n coordinates x1, . . . , xn, v1, . . . vn of a vector tangent to N at some point in N.

The Lagrangian formalism 2.1. The Euler-Lagrange equations When the mechanical system is conservative, the Euler-Lagrange equations involve a single real valued function L called the Lagrangian of the system, deﬁned on the product of the real line R (spanned by the variable t representing the time) with the manifold TN of kinematic states of the system. In local coordinates, the Lagrangian L is expressed as a function of the 2n + 1 variables, t, x1, . . . , xn, v1, . . . , vn and the Euler-Lagrange equations have the remarkably simple form d dt ∂L ∂vi t, x(t), v(t) − ∂L ∂xi t, x(t), v(t) = 0 , 1 i n , where x(t) stands for x1(t), . . . , xn(t) and v(t) for v1(t), . . . , vn(t) with, of course, vi (t) = dxi (t) dt , 1 i n .

The Lagrangian formalism 2.2. Hamilton’s principle of stationary action The great Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton (1805–1865) observed [8, 9] that the Euler-Lagrange equations can be obtained by applying the standard techniques of Calculus of Variations, due to Leonhard Euler (1707–1783) and Joseph Louis Lagrange, to the action integral IL(γ) = t1 t0 L t, x(t), v(t) = dx(t) dt dt , where γ : [t0, t1] → N is a smooth curve in N parametrized by the time t. These equations express the fact that the action integral IL(γ) is stationary with respect to any smooth inﬁnitesimal variation of γ with ﬁxed end-points t0, γ(t0) and t1, γ(t1) . This fact is today called Hamilton’s principle of stationary action.

The Lagrangian formalism 2.2. Hamilton’s principle of stationary action The great Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton (1805–1865) observed [8, 9] that the Euler-Lagrange equations can be obtained by applying the standard techniques of Calculus of Variations, due to Leonhard Euler (1707–1783) and Joseph Louis Lagrange, to the action integral IL(γ) = t1 t0 L t, x(t), v(t) = dx(t) dt dt , where γ : [t0, t1] → N is a smooth curve in N parametrized by the time t. These equations express the fact that the action integral IL(γ) is stationary with respect to any smooth inﬁnitesimal variation of γ with ﬁxed end-points t0, γ(t0) and t1, γ(t1) . This fact is today called Hamilton’s principle of stationary action. This principle does not appear explicitly in Lagrange’s book in which the Euler-Lagrange equations are obtained by a very clever evaluation of the virtual work of inertial forces for a smooth inﬁnitesimal variation of the motion.

The Lagrangian formalism 2.3. The Euler-Cartan theorem The Lagrangian formalism is the use of Hamilton’s principle of stationary action for the derivation of the equations of motion of a system. It is widely used in Mathematical Physics, often with more general Lagrangians involving more than one independent variable and higher order partial derivatives of dependent variables. For simplicity I will consider here only the Lagrangians of (maybe time dependent) conservative mechanical systems.

It is widely used in Mathematical Physics, often with more general Lagrangians involving more than one independent variable and higher order partial derivatives of dependent variables. For simplicity I will consider here only the Lagrangians of (maybe time dependent) conservative mechanical systems. An intrinsic geometric expression of the Euler-Lagrange equations, wich does not use local coordinates, was obtained by the great French mathematician ´Elie Cartan (1869–1951). Let T∗N be the cotangent space to the conﬁguration manifold N (often called the phase space of the mechanical system), θN be its Liouville 1-form, LL = dvertL : R × TN → T∗N be the Legendre map and E : R × TN → R be the energy function EL(t, v) = dvertL(t, v), v − L(t, v) , v ∈ TN .

Application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems 9/84 The Lagrangian formalism (5) 2.3. The Euler-Cartan theorem (2) The 1-form on R × TN L = L∗ LθN − EL(t, v)dt is called the Euler-Poincar´e 1-form. The Euler-Cartan theorem, due to ´Elie Cartan, asserts that the action integral IL(γ) is stationary at a smooth parametrized curve γ : [t0, t1] → N, with respect to smooth inﬁnitesimal variations of γ with ﬁxed end-points, if and only if i d dt t, dγ(t) dt d L t, dγ(t) dt = 0 .

The Euler-Cartan theorem (2) The 1-form on R × TN L = L∗ LθN − EL(t, v)dt is called the Euler-Poincar´e 1-form. The Euler-Cartan theorem, due to ´Elie Cartan, asserts that the action integral IL(γ) is stationary at a smooth parametrized curve γ : [t0, t1] → N, with respect to smooth inﬁnitesimal variations of γ with ﬁxed end-points, if and only if i d dt t, dγ(t) dt d L t, dγ(t) dt = 0 . In his beautiful book [?], Jean-Marie Souriau uses a slightly diﬀerent terminology: for him the odd-dimensional space R × TN is the evolution space of the system, and the exact 2-form d L on that space is the Lagrange form. He deﬁnes that 2-form in a setting more general than that of the Lagrangian formalism.

Lagrangian symmetries Let N be the conﬁguration space of a conservative Lagrangian mechanical system with a smooth Lagrangian, maybe time dependent, L : R × TN → R. Let L be the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form on the evolution space R × TN. Several kinds of symmetries can be deﬁned, which very often are special cases of inﬁnitesimal symmetries of the Poincar´e-Cartan form, which play an important part in the famous Noether theorem.

Inﬁnitesimal symmetries of the Poincar´e-Cartan form Deﬁnition An inﬁnitesimal symmetry of the Poincar´e-Cartan form L is a vector ﬁeld Z on R × TN such that L(Z) L = 0 , L(Z) denoting the Lie derivative of diﬀerential forms with respect to Z.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.1. Inﬁnitesimal symmetries of the Poincar´e-Cartan form (2) Examples 1 Let us assume that the Lagrangian L does not depend on the time t ∈ R, i.e. is a smooth function on TN. The vector ﬁeld on R × TN denoted by ∂ ∂t , whose projection on R is equal to 1 and whose projection on TN is 0, is an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.1. Inﬁnitesimal symmetries of the Poincar´e-Cartan form (2) Examples 1 Let us assume that the Lagrangian L does not depend on the time t ∈ R, i.e. is a smooth function on TN. The vector ﬁeld on R × TN denoted by ∂ ∂t , whose projection on R is equal to 1 and whose projection on TN is 0, is an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L. 2 Let X be a smooth vector ﬁeld on N and X be its canonical lift to the tangent bundle TN. We still assume that L does not depend on the time t. Moreover we assume that X is an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of the Lagrangian L, i.e. that L(X)L = 0. Considered as a vector ﬁeld on R × TN whose projection on the factor R is 0, X is an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.2. The Noether theorem in Lagrangian formalism Theorem (E. Noether’s theorem in Lagrangian formalism) Let Z be an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of the Poincar´e-Cartan form L. For each possible motion γ : [t0, t1] → N of the Lagrangian system, the function, deﬁned on R × TN, i(Z) L keeps a constant value along the parametrized curve t → t, dγ(t) dt .

Lagrangian symmetries 3.2. The Noether theorem in Lagrangian formalism Theorem (E. Noether’s theorem in Lagrangian formalism) Let Z be an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of the Poincar´e-Cartan form L. For each possible motion γ : [t0, t1] → N of the Lagrangian system, the function, deﬁned on R × TN, i(Z) L keeps a constant value along the parametrized curve t → t, dγ(t) dt . Example When the Lagrangian L does not depend on time, application of Emmy Noether’s theorem to the vector ﬁeld ∂ ∂t shows that the energy EL remains constant during any possible motion of the system, since i ∂ ∂t L = −EL.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.2. The Noether theorem in Lagrangian formalism (2) Remark There exists many generalizations of the Noether theorem. For example, if instead of being an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L, i.e. instead of satisfying L(Z) L = 0 the vector ﬁeld Z satisﬁes L(Z) L = df , where f : R × TM → R is a smooth function, which implies of course L(Z)(d L) = 0 , the function i(Z) L − f keeps a constant value along t → t, dγ(t) dt .

Lagrangian symmetries 3.3. The Lagrangian momentum map The Lie bracket of two inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L is also an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L. Let us therefore assume that there exists a ﬁnite dimensional Lie algebra of vector ﬁelds on R × TN whose elements are inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L. Charles-Michel Marle, Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie Actions of Lie groups and Lie algebras on symplectic and Poisson manifolds. Application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems 15/84 3. Lagrangian symmetries 3.3. The Lagrangian momentum map The Lie bracket of two inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L is also an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L. Let us therefore assume that there exists a ﬁnite dimensional Lie algebra of vector ﬁelds on R × TN whose elements are inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L. Deﬁnition Let ψ : G → A1(R × TN) be a Lie algebras homomorphism of a ﬁnite-dimensional real Lie algebra G into the Lie algebra of smooth vector ﬁelds on R × TN such that, for each X ∈ G, ψ(X) is an inﬁnitesimal symmetry of L. The Lie algebras homomorphism ψ is said to be a Lie algebra action on R × TN by inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L. The map KL : R × TN → G∗, which takes its values in the dual G∗ of the Lie algebra G, deﬁned by KL(t, v), X = i ψ(X) L(t, v) , (t, v) ∈ R × TN , is called the Lagrangian momentum of the Lie algebra action ψ.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.3. The Lagrangian momentum map (2) Corollary (of E. Noether’s theorem) Let ψ : G → A1(R × TM) be an action of a ﬁnite-dimensional real Lie algebra G on the evolution space R × TN of a conservative Lagrangian system, by inﬁnitesimal symmetries of the Poincar´e-Cartan form L. For each possible motion γ : [t0, t1] → N of that system, the Lagrangian momentum map KL keeps a constant value along the parametrized curve t → t, dγ(t) dt .

Lagrangian symmetries 3.3. The Lagrangian momentum map (3) Example Let us assume that the Lagrangian L does not depend explicitly on the time t and is invariant by the canonical lift to the tangent bundle of the action on N of the six-dimensional group of Euclidean diplacements (rotations and translations) of the physical space. The corresponding inﬁnitesimal action of the Lie algebra of inﬁnitesimal Euclidean displacements (considered as an action on R × TN, the action on the factor R being trivial) is an action by inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L. The six components of the Lagrangian momentum map are the three components of the total linear momentum and the three components of the total angular momentum.

Lagrangian symmetries 3.3. The Lagrangian momentum map (3) Example Let us assume that the Lagrangian L does not depend explicitly on the time t and is invariant by the canonical lift to the tangent bundle of the action on N of the six-dimensional group of Euclidean diplacements (rotations and translations) of the physical space. The corresponding inﬁnitesimal action of the Lie algebra of inﬁnitesimal Euclidean displacements (considered as an action on R × TN, the action on the factor R being trivial) is an action by inﬁnitesimal symmetries of L. The six components of the Lagrangian momentum map are the three components of the total linear momentum and the three components of the total angular momentum. Remark These results are valid without any assumption of hyper-regularity of the Lagrangian. Charles-Michel Marle, Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie Actions of Lie groups and Lie algebras on symplectic and Poisson manifolds. Application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems 17/84 4. The Hamiltonian formalism The Lagrangian formalism can be applied to any smooth Lagrangian. Its application yields second order diﬀerential equations on R × TN (in local coordinates, the Euler-Lagrange equations) which in general are not solved with respect to the second order derivatives of the unknown functions with respect to time. The classical existence and unicity theorems for the solutions of diﬀerential equations (such as the Cauchy-Lipschitz theorem) therefore cannot be applied to these equations. 1 Lagrange obtained however Hamilton’s equations before Hamilton, but only in a special case, for the slow “variations of constants” such as the orbital parameters of planets in the solar system. Charles-Michel Marle, Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie Actions of Lie groups and Lie algebras on symplectic and Poisson manifolds. Application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems 18/84 4. The Hamiltonian formalism The Lagrangian formalism can be applied to any smooth Lagrangian. Its application yields second order diﬀerential equations on R × TN (in local coordinates, the Euler-Lagrange equations) which in general are not solved with respect to the second order derivatives of the unknown functions with respect to time. The classical existence and unicity theorems for the solutions of diﬀerential equations (such as the Cauchy-Lipschitz theorem) therefore cannot be applied to these equations. Under the additional assumption that the Lagrangian is hyper-regular, a very clever change of variables discovered by William Rowan Hamilton 1 allows a new formulation of these equations in the framework of symplectic geometry. The Hamiltonian formalism is the use of these new equations. It was later generalized independently of the Lagrangian formalism. 1 Lagrange obtained however Hamilton’s equations before Hamilton, but only in a special case, for the slow “variations of constants” such as the orbital parameters of planets in the solar system. Charles-Michel Marle, Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie Actions of Lie groups and Lie algebras on symplectic and Poisson manifolds. Application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems 18/84 4. The Hamiltonian formalism 4.1. Hyper-regular Lagrangians Assume that for each ﬁxed value of the time t ∈ R, the map v → LL(t, v) is a smooth diﬀeomorphism of the tangent bundle TN onto the cotangent bundle T∗N. Equivalent assumption: the map (idR, LL) : (t, v) → t, LL(t, v) is a smooth diﬀeomorphism of R × TN onto R × T∗N. The Lagrangian L is then said to be hyper-regular. The equations of motion can be written on R × T∗N instead of R × TN.

The Hamiltonian formalism 4.1. Hyper-regular Lagrangians Assume that for each ﬁxed value of the time t ∈ R, the map v → LL(t, v) is a smooth diﬀeomorphism of the tangent bundle TN onto the cotangent bundle T∗N. Equivalent assumption: the map (idR, LL) : (t, v) → t, LL(t, v) is a smooth diﬀeomorphism of R × TN onto R × T∗N. The Lagrangian L is then said to be hyper-regular. The equations of motion can be written on R × T∗N instead of R × TN. Let HL : R × T∗N → R be the function, called the Hamiltonian associated to the Lagrangian L, HL(t, p) = EL ◦ (idR, LL)−1 (t, p) , t ∈ R , p ∈ T∗ N , EL : R × TN → R being the energy function. The Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form L on R × TN is the pull-back, by the diﬀeomorphism (idR, LL) : R × TN → R × T∗N, of the 1-form on R × T∗N H = θN − Hdt , where θN is the Liouville 1-form on T∗N.

The Hamiltonian formalism 4.2. Presymplectic manifolds The 1-form HL on R × T∗N is called the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form in Hamiltonian formalism. It is related to the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form L on R × TN, called the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form in Lagrangian formalism, by L = (idR, LL)∗ HL .

The Hamiltonian formalism 4.2. Presymplectic manifolds The 1-form HL on R × T∗N is called the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form in Hamiltonian formalism. It is related to the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form L on R × TN, called the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-form in Lagrangian formalism, by L = (idR, LL)∗ HL . The exterior derivatives d L and d HL of the Poincar´e-Cartan 1-forms in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms both are presymplectic 2-forms on the odd-dimensional manifolds R × TN and R × T∗N, respectively. At any point of these manifolds, the kernels of these closed 2 forms are 1-dimensional, therefore determine a foliation into smooth curves of these manifolds. The Euler-Cartan theorem shows that each of these curves is a possible motion of the system, described either in the Lagrangian formalism, or in the Hamiltonian formalism, respectively.

The Hamiltonian formalism 4.2. Presymplectic manifolds (2) The set of all possible motions of the system, called by Jean-Marie Souriau the manifold of motions of the system, is described in the Lagrangian formalism by the quotient of the Lagrangian evolution space R × TM by its foliation into curves determined by ker d L, and in the Hamiltonian formalism by the quotient of the Hamiltonian evolution space R × T∗M by its foliation into curves determined by ker d HL . Both are (maybe non-Hausdorﬀ) symplectic manifolds, the projections on these quotient manifolds of the presymplectic forms d L and d h both being symplectic forms. Of course the diﬀeomorphism (idR, LL) : R × TN → R × T∗N projects onto a symplectomorphism between the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian descriptions of the manifold of motions of the system.

The Marsden-Weinstein reduction procedure [25, 26] or one of its generalizations [28] is the most often method used to facilitate the determination of solutions of the equations of motion. In a ﬁrst step, a possible value of the momentum map is chosen and the subset of the phas space on which the momentum map takes this value is determined. In a second step, that subset (when it is a smooth manifold) is quotiented by its isotropic foliation. The quotient manifold is a symplectic manifold of a dimension smaller than that of the original phase space, and one has an easier to solve Hamiltonian system on that reduced phase space.Charles-Michel Marle, Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie Actions of Lie groups and Lie algebras on symplectic and Poisson manifolds.

For simplicity I will assume in the following that this symplectomorphism is a global symplectomorphism of (M, ω) onto (T∗N, dθN). In other words I assume that all the motions of the system are deﬁned for all values of the time t ∈ R. Deﬁnition A statistical state of the mechanical system is a probability measure on the symplectic manifold of motions (M, ω).

Moreover, by using convexity arguments, he proves that when Q is given, there is at most one corresponding value of Θ, so that Ψ(Θ) and the probability density ρ are uniquely determined. Moreover, he proves that the value of s(ρ) is a strict maximum, with respect to smooth variations of ρ satisfying the two above stated constraints. That maximum is a function S of the variable Θ given by S(Θ) = Ψ(Θ) + Θ.Q(Θ) , therefore dS(Θ) dΘ = −Θ d2Ψ(Θ) dΘ2 .

For each value Q of the momentum map J for which the involved integrals are normally convergent, there exists a unique Gibbs state whose probability density ρ is given by ρ(ϕ) = exp −Ψ − Θ, J(ϕ) , where Ψ is a real constant and Θ a constant which takes its value in the Lie algebra G, considered as the dual of G∗, which satisfy the two equalities Ψ = log M exp − Θ, J(ϕ) ωn (ϕ) , Q = M J(ϕ) exp − Θ, E(ϕ) ωn (ϕ) M exp − Θ, J(ϕ) ωn (ϕ) .

The Euler-Poincar´e equation In a short Note [29] published in 1901, the great french mathematician Henri Poincar´e (1854–1912) proposed a new formulation of the equations of Mechanics. Assumptions Let N be the conﬁguration manifold of a conservative Lagrangian system, with a smooth Lagrangian L : TN → R which does not depend explicitly on time. Poincar´e assumes that there exists an homomorphism ψ of a ﬁnite-dimensional real Lie algebra G into the Lie algebra A1(N) of smooth vector ﬁelds on N, such that for each x ∈ N, the values at x of the vetor ﬁelds ψ(X), when X varies in G, completely ﬁll the tangent space Tx N.

The Bargmann group and its applications in Thermodynamics are discussed in the recent paper by G. de Saxc´e and C. Vall´ee [6]. The very nice recent book [14] by Y. Kosmann-Schwarzbach gives an excellent historical and mathematical presentation of the Noether theorems.
