报告摘要  Abstract

In the 1970s W. M. Tulczyjew discovered a geometrical formulation for the classical mechanics, which elegantly unifies the Lagrangian mechanics with the Hamiltonian mechanics.

In this short lecture series, we shall give a background introduction to this unified approach to the classical mechanics, including Tulczyjew’s formalism for particles in Yang-Mills fields. Along the way, we shall explain the following three geometric ingredients: 1) Dufour’s double vector bundle isomorphism, 2) Steinberg's phase space, 3) Tulczyjew's insight to the classical mechanics.
