Taylor Variational Integrators

Jeremy Schmitt
UCSD

Abstract:

A brief introduction to discrete variational mechanics, motivated by the goal of constructing symplectic one-step methods, will be presented. Followed by the presentation of a new type of variational integrator that utilizes Taylor's method in it's construction. Time permitting, we will make some remarks on the pros/cons and stability of constructing the variational integrator from the Lagrangian variational framework versus the Hamiltonian variational framework.
