Inverse Problems of Mei Symmetry for Nonholonomic Systems with Variable Mass

  • W.-L. Huang (a1) and J.-L. Cai (a2)

Abstract

The inverse problem of the Mei symmetry for nonholonomic systems with variable mass is studied. Firstly, the authors discuss the Mei symmetry of the holonomic system opposite to a nonholonomic system. Secondly, weak and strong Mei symmetries of a nonholonomic system are concluded through restriction equations and additional restriction equations. Thirdly, the relevant conserved quantity is deduced by means of the structure equation for the gauge function. Fourthly, the inverse problem of the Mei symmetry is obtained by the Noether symmetry. Finally, the paper offers an example to illustrate the application of the research result.
