Abstract

In this paper the problem of obtaining the equations of motion for Hamiltonian systems with constraints is considered. Conditions are given which ensure that the phase space points satisfying the primary and secondary constraints form a symplectic manifold, on which the resulting equations of motion are Hamiltonian and uniquely determined
