The Journal of Geometric Mechanics (JGM) aims to publish research articles devoted to geometric methods (in a broad sense) in mechanics and control theory, and intends to facilitate interaction between theory and applications. Advances in the following topics are welcomed by the journal:
1. Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics
2. Symplectic and Poisson geometry and their applications to mechanics
3. Geometric and optimal control theory
4. Geometric and variational integration
5. Geometry of stochastic systems
6. Geometric methods in dynamical systems
7. Continuum mechanics
8. Classical field theory
9. Fluid mechanics
10. Infinite-dimensional dynamical systems
11. Quantum mechanics and quantum information theory
12. Applications in physics, technology, engineering and the biological sciences

Tulczyjew's triples are constructed for the Schmidt-Legendre transformations of both second and third-order Lagrangians. Symplectic diffeomorphisms relating the Ostrogradsky-Legendre and the Schmidt-Legendre transformations are derived. Several examples are presented.
We consider the Euler-Poisson equations describing the motion of a heavy rigid body about a fixed point with parameters in a complex domain. We suppose that these equations admit a first integral functionally independent of the three already known integrals which does not depend on all the variables. We prove that this may happen only in the already known three integrable cases or in the trivial case of kinetic symmetry. We provide a method for finding such a fourth integral, when it exists.
About 6 years ago, semitoric systems were classified by Pelayo & Vũ Ngọc by means of five invariants. Standard examples are the coupled spin oscillator on
