Linear systems with quadratic integral and symplectic geometry of Artin spaces. (Russian, English) Zbl 1086.37028
Prikl. Mat. Mekh. 68, No. 3, 371-383 (2004); translation in J. Appl. Math. Mech. 68, No. 3, 329-340 (2004).
The author considers systems of linear differential equations with constant coefficients that admit a nondegenerate quadratic first integral. It was shown by the author [J. Appl. Math. Mech. 56, 803–809 (1992; Zbl 0792.70014)] that such systems can be written in Hamiltonian form with respect to a particular symplectic structure. In the current work, the author exploits this fact further to establish relations between the spectrum of the linear systems and the indices of inertia of the quadratic form and to find conditions under which the singular planes of the quadratic form are Lagrangian with respect to the particular symplectic structure. These results are applied to study the stability of a gyroscopic system.
