Over all ‘possible’ acceleration 3n-vectors, x Proof: For the constrained mechanical system described by equations (1)–(3) and (10), the 3n-vector d satisfies relation (14); hence the last member on the right-hand side of equation (16) becomes zero. Since M is positive definite, the scalar (d, d)M on the right-hand side of (16) is always positive for d = 0. By virtue of (16), the ˆ¨ = x minimum of (17) must therefore occur when x ¨. Remark 1: We note that the units of C are those of force; furthermore C needs to be prescribed (at each instant of time) by the mechanician, based upon examination of the given specific mechanical system whose equations of motion (s)he wants to write.

The following forces are acting on the point mass M : a) the gravity force M g is acting downward in vertical direction; b) the tension force T at the point x = l is acting upward along the tangent line; c) the exterior force f (t) which is assumed to act in the horizontal direction (see Fig. 1). Thus, we obtain the following equation which describes the transversal motion of the point mass M : M utt (l, t) = −T (l)ux (l, t) + f (t) . 6) Substituting T from Eq. 2) into Eq. 6), we obtain M utt (l, t) = −M gux (l, t) + f (t) .

Hence by (12) at time t, we must have dT (M x ¨ − F − C) = 0 . (14) We now present two Lemmas. Lemma 1 For any symmetric k by k matrix Y , and any set of k-vectors e, f and g, (e − g, e − g)Y − (e − f, e − f )Y = (g − f, g − f )Y − 2(e − f, g − f )Y , (15) where we define (a, b)Y ≡ aT Y b for the two k-vectors a and b. Proof: This identity can be verified directly. For short, in what follows, we shall call aT Y a the Y -norm of the vector a (actually it is the square of the Y -norm). E. Udwadia ˆ¨ − x Lemma 2 Any vector d = x ¨ satisfies at time t, the relation ˆ¨ − (F + C), (M x ˆ¨ − (F + C))M −1 − (M x (M x ¨ − (F + C), M x ¨ − (F + C))M −1 = = (d, d)M + 2(M x ¨ − (F + C), d) .
