Relative equilibria arise in nature and in industry. For example, steady rotation of coupled rigid or deformable bodies and steady motions in fluid models are of interest to engineers, physicists, and chemists. The analysis of concrete examples elucidates the limitations of existing theoretical approaches and can bring to light unrecognized structures, leading to more general or efficient methodologies. The speakers in this minisymposium will focus on several specific applications and demonstrate mutually beneficial interaction between theory and example.
