Une approche systématique à la résoluton du corps solide de Kowalewski. (A systematic approach to the integration of Kowalewski’s rigid body motion). (French) Zbl 0606.34012
Author’s abstract: ”We use the method of Laurent expansions, as systematized by M. Adler and P. van Moerbeke, to integrate Kowalewski’s top, and we deduce a linearization on the dual of a Prym variety of a curve of genus 3.”
