    My research interests include: Hamiltonian and Lagrangian mechanics, symplectic geometry, integrable systems (including the Toda lattice, the dispersionless Toda lattice, geodesic flows and rigid body dynamics), stability, nonholonomic systems (the motion of mechanical systems with nonintegrable constraints), the relationship between continuous and discrete flows, nonlinear control and optimal control. I study various other other topics in geometric mechanics and nonlinear dynamics including quantum dynamics and control and the dynamics of astrophysical systems.



    Anthony Bloch is named a Fellow of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).     2012
    Fellows are SIAM members who are recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to applied mathematics and computational science. The individuals are recognized for outstanding research in the field as well as their service to the larger community. Bloch was cited for contributions to the dynamics and control of mechanical systems.
