Methods of the theory of dynamical systems and algebraic geometry are used to investigate the mechanical vibrations of a uniform elastic beam compressed at the ends. The nonlinear differential equation describing these vibrations has been shown to be a completely integrable Hamiltonian dynamical system on a special infinite-dimensional simple function space and admits an infinite sequence of first integrals in involution. However, embedding of nonlinear equation in the scheme of symplectic analysis as a dynamical system is based on certain propositions. The author has proposed four lemmata. The paper is of interest to mathematicians working in the area of nonlinear vibrations.
