A tour of subriemannian geometries, their geodesics and applications

Subriemannian geometries, often referred to as Carnot-Caratheodory geometries, will be seen as limits of Riemannian geometries. additionally they come up in actual phenomenon regarding ""geometric phases"" or holonomy. Very approximately conversing, a subriemannian geometry comprises a manifold endowed with a distribution (meaning a $k$-plane box, or subbundle of the tangent bundle), referred to as horizontal including an internal product on that distribution.

XY of a circle in a given direction such that the area of the quadrilateral A BX Y, where AB is a given diameter, is a maximum. [Draw a diameter YX\ and A YBX' is a rectangle, hence AX' is BY. Join JJJfand XX', and draw BC parallel to XX'. Then since equal and parallel to triangle reject the common A XX + triangle part A MX and 1 BXY= triangle ABX', BMX be added to each, let BXX'^ABXY. The quadrilateral is a maximum therefore when BXX* is a MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM. maximum. It easy to see that the latter is inscribed in a given segment EC.

Let the locus be a curve of any order and it is readily seen I. ] (Euc. 2. In Ex. 1 when is the sum of the sides a minimum or maximum ? [Let locus C and MN. C' be two points the indefinitely near to each other on and C' Y perpendiculars to AC' and EC CX Draw respectively. Then since in the triangle finitely small, ACX nearly equal to AX. is A CX, X is a right angle and A approximately a right angle and Hence inde- AC C'X=AC'-AX=AC'-AC. is CY the increment (negative) of BO. Similarly Therefore C'X=CY and the right-angled triangles CC'X CC'Y are equal in AC'C=ACM when A every is in the limit respect, and LAC'C=LBCC'.
