Abstract

Starting with an unconstrained mechanical system that is governed by an initial unconstrained Lagrangian, subsequently modified by nonholonomic, linear in velocities, constraints, an explicit construction for a Lagrangian that will produce mechanically correct equations of motion for that constrained nonholonomic system is given. Obtaining a Hamiltonian from that Lagrangian is briefly discussed.
