Error-based control systems on Riemannian state manifolds: Properties of the principal pushforward map associated to parallel transport

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(4) Related Papers Cited by
  • The objective of the paper is to contribute to the theory of error-based control systems on Riemannian manifolds. The present study focuses on system where the control field influences the covariant derivative of a control path. In order to define error terms in such systems, it is necessary to compare tangent vectors at different points using parallel transport and to understand how the covariant derivative of a vector field along a path changes after such field gets parallely transported to a different curve. It turns out that such analysis relies on a specific map, termed principal pushforward map. The present paper aims at contributing to the algebraic theory of the principal pushforward map and of its relationship with the curvature endomorphism of a state manifold.
