Controlled motion of finite elements

Kazimierz Frąckiewicz, Małgorzata Seredyńska, Jan J. Sławianowski
We are considering the finite elements controlled motion, in view of further applications of it into problems of the control of deformations. Using differential-geometric techniques based on the Lie brackets and the Lie algebras we have formulated certain statements concerning controllability and minimization of the number of controlling inputs.
