Title:  Optimal control versus sub-Riemannian geometry: physical and
mechanical applications

Abstract:  In this communication we present a formulation of optimal
control systems for problems with non-holonomic constraints in a
geometric way introducing the notion of the sub-Riemannian geometry. We
give some examples of sub-Riemannian manifolds related to the Lie groups
and principal bundles that appear in physics and mechanics. We discuss
advantages of the geometric methods and open problems. 



The seminar will take place on Wednesday 18th November, at 2pm, in
