    • Abstract


      The connection between quasi-invariants (invariants of a Hamiltonian system defined only on a single constant energy hypersurface) and generalized Killing vector fields associated with the corresponding Jacobi metric is investigated. The results are used to deduce a generalised form of the classical Whittaker problem in two degrees of freedom.
