Selected Topics In Rigid Body Dynamics

This paper introduces and exemplifies the applications of differential geometry on dynamics (manifolds in dynamics, constraints, lagrangian and d'alembert, etc.). After restating basic concepts, free rigid body fixed at a point and heavy-top dynamics are examined by the paper.
