Abstract

A relationship between yokes and symplectic forms is established and explored. It is shown that normalised yokes correspond to certain symplectic forms. A method of obtaining new yokes from old is given, motivated partly by the duality between the Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formulations of conservative mechanics. Some variants of this construction are suggested. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
