Stability for the free multidimensional rigid body and algebraic curves
Anton Izosimov | University of Toronto
It is a classical result of Euler that the rotation of a torque-free three-dimensional rigid body about the short or the long axis is stable, while the rotation about the middle axis is unstable. I will show how to use simple ideas from classical algebraic geometry to obtain a multidimensional generalization of this theorem.
Dr. Anton Izosimov received a PhD from Moscow State University in 2011 and a PhD from Loughborough University in 2012. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. His research interests are Integrable systems, geometry, and Lie theory.
