Proto-Galilean Dynamics of a Particle and a Continuous Body

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A general structure for space-time that preserves the classical notion of absolute time, and to which we refer as Proto-Galilean space-time, is presented. In this setting, space-time is modeled as a general fiber bundle over the time axis. The motion of a particle is a section of the fiber bundle. A recent framework for continuum mechanics, where configurations are represented by sections of a fiber bundle over the body manifold, is used to formulate the dynamics of a particle and the dynamics of a continuous body in a Proto-Galilean space-time.
