A Lie system is a system of ordinary di erential equations (ODE)
admitting a superposition principle or superposition rule, i.e., a map
allowing us to express the general solution of the system of ODEs in
terms of a family of particular solutions and a set of constants related
to initial conditions. These superposition principles are, in general,
From the point of view of their applications, Lie systems play a
relevant role in Cosmology, Financial Mathematics, Control Theory,
Quantum Mechanical problems and Biology.
We focus on a particular type of Lie system: the so-called Lie{
Hamilton systems on the plane. A complete classi cation of these systems
is provided on R2, their solutions in terms of superposition principles
are achieved through the Poisson coalgebra theory and physical
interpretations are contemplated within a number of explicit examples.
For these matters, a brief review of Di erential Geometry fundamentals
in modern language is followed along this seminar.
