In terms of the Lagrange formulation of dynamics, ignorable coordinates are defined for the class of “pseudodissipative” mechanical systems. Reduced equilibria (steady motions) of such systems are defined and studied with regard to their stability properties. We obtain broad results and results readily applicable to specific technical problems.
