Asier López-Gordón

Research interests

My general area of interest is differential geometry and its applications to mathematical physics, control theory and dynamical systems. More specifically, my work concerns the geometrical aspects of non-conservative mechanical systems. I'm particularly interested in the symmetries, integrability and reduction methods for such systems.
