"""Lagrange's method object.
This object generates the equations of motion in a two step procedure. The
first step involves the initialization of LagrangesMethod by supplying the
Lagrangian and the generalized coordinates, at the bare minimum. If there
are any constraint equations, they can be supplied as keyword arguments.
The Lagrange multipliers are automatically generated and are equal in
number to the constraint equations. Similarly any non-conservative forces
can be supplied in an iterable (as described below and also shown in the
example) along with a ReferenceFrame. This is also discussed further in the
__init__ method.
Attributes
==========
q, u : Matrix
Matrices of the generalized coordinates and speeds
forcelist : iterable
Iterable of (Point, vector) or (ReferenceFrame, vector) tuples
describing the forces on the system.
bodies : iterable
Iterable containing the rigid bodies and particles of the system.
mass_matrix : Matrix
The system's mass matrix
forcing : Matrix
The system's forcing vector
mass_matrix_full : Matrix
The "mass matrix" for the qdot's, qdoubledot's, and the
lagrange multipliers (lam)
forcing_full : Matrix
The forcing vector for the qdot's, qdoubledot's and
lagrange multipliers (lam)
Examples
========
This is a simple example for a one degree of freedom translational
spring-mass-damper.
In this example, we first need to do the kinematics.
This involves creating generalized coordinates and their derivatives.
Then we create a point and set its velocity in a frame.
>>> from sympy.physics.mechanics import LagrangesMethod, Lagrangian
>>> from sympy.physics.mechanics import ReferenceFrame, Particle, Point
>>> from sympy.physics.mechanics import dynamicsymbols, kinetic_energy
>>> from sympy import symbols
>>> q = dynamicsymbols('q')
>>> qd = dynamicsymbols('q', 1)
>>> m, k, b = symbols('m k b')
>>> N = ReferenceFrame('N')
>>> P = Point('P')
>>> P.set_vel(N, qd * N.x)
We need to then prepare the information as required by LagrangesMethod to
generate equations of motion.
First we create the Particle, which has a point attached to it.
Following this the lagrangian is created from the kinetic and potential
energies.
Then, an iterable of nonconservative forces/torques must be constructed,
where each item is a (Point, Vector) or (ReferenceFrame, Vector) tuple,
with the Vectors representing the nonconservative forces or torques.
>>> Pa = Particle('Pa', P, m)
>>> Pa.potential_energy = k * q**2 / 2.0
>>> L = Lagrangian(N, Pa)
>>> fl = [(P, -b * qd * N.x)]
Finally we can generate the equations of motion.
First we create the LagrangesMethod object. To do this one must supply
the Lagrangian, and the generalized coordinates. The constraint equations,
the forcelist, and the inertial frame may also be provided, if relevant.
Next we generate Lagrange's equations of motion, such that:
Lagrange's equations of motion = 0.
We have the equations of motion at this point.
>>> l = LagrangesMethod(L, [q], forcelist = fl, frame = N)
>>> print(l.form_lagranges_equations())
Matrix([[b*Derivative(q(t), t) + 1.0*k*q(t) + m*Derivative(q(t), t, t)]])
We can also solve for the states using the 'rhs' method.
>>> print(l.rhs())
Matrix([[Derivative(q(t), t)], [(-b*Derivative(q(t), t) - 1.0*k*q(t))/m]])
Please refer to the docstrings on each method for more details.
