Oscar E. Fernandez
Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Research is in geometric mechanics and specifically in Nonholonomic Mechanics. Presently researching Hamiltonian-like properties of some special types of nonholonomic systems.

Professor Fernandez's current research is in Geometric Mechanics, which can perhaps most easily be described as Hamiltonian Mechanics on manifolds, and specifically in Nonholonomic Mechanics. He is presently researching the Hamiltonian-like properties of some special types of nonholonomic systems, through ideas in symplectic geometry and the theory of integrable systems.
