Commutative conservation laws for geodesic flows of metrics admitting projective symmetry


Topalov, P (2002). Commutative conservation laws for geodesic flows of metrics admitting projective symmetry. Mathematical Research Letters, 9(1):65-72.

Abstract

We prove that the geodesic flow of a pseudo-Riemannian metric $g$ that admits a "nontrivial" projective symmetry $X$ is completely integrable. Nontriviality condition of the projective symmetry is expressed in the terms of the invariants of the pair forms $g$ and $L_Xg$, where $L_X$ denotes the Lie derivative with respect to the vector field $X$. The theorem we propose can be considered as a "commutative" analog of the Noether theorem.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
