Suslov Problem with the Clebsch–Tisserand Potential
2018, vol. 23, no. 2, pp.  193-211
In this paper, we study a nonholonomic mechanical system, namely, the Suslov problem with the Clebsch–Tisserand potential. We analyze the topology of the level sets defined by the integrals in two ways: using an explicit construction and as a consequence of the Poincaré–Hopf theorem. We describe the flow on such manifolds.
Keywords: Suslov Problem, topology of level sets, nonholonomic systems, rigid body, Chaplygin systems
