About the Authors
  • Dynamics of Particles and Rigid Bodies: A Systematic Approach is intended for undergraduate courses in dynamics. This work is a unique blend of conceptual, theoretical, and practical aspects of dynamics generally not found in dynamics books at the undergraduate level. In particular, in this book the concepts are developed in a highly rigorous manner and are applied to examples using a step-by-step approach that is completely consistent with the theory. In addition, for clarity, the notation used to develop the theory is identical to that used to solve example problems. The result of this approach is that a student is able to see clearly the connection between the theory and the application of theory to example problems. While the material is not new, instructors and their students will appreciate the highly pedagogical approach that aids in the mastery and retention of concepts. The approach used in this book teaches a student to develop a systematic approach to problem-solving. The work is supported by a great range of examples and reinforced by numerous problems for student solution. An Instructor's Solutions Manual is available.

    • Rigorous, systematic, introduction which presents theory and examples at the same level
    • Uses a step-by-step vector approach to problem solving
    • Contains numerous examples and end-of-chapter exercises

    Reviews & endorsements

    “The book leads students from first principles through problem solving. It includes lots of detailed solutions to example problems, a wide range of possible homework problems, and beautiful figures and diagrams. The prose flows smoothly and is written with clarity.”
    Choice

    "All examples are worked in detail, are tied in well with the text, and are accompanied by excellent illustrations. These examples are a great aid to learning the material and will leave the student in good shape for solving the complex problems that will come up in the 'real world'."
    Mark D. Ardema, Santa Clara University, SIAM Review
