About the Authors
  • Suitable for both senior-level and first-year graduate courses, this fully revised edition provides a unique and systematic treatment of engineering dynamics that covers Newton-Euler and Lagrangian approaches. New to this edition are: Two completely revised chapters on the constraints on, and potential energies for, rigid bodies, and the dynamics of systems of particles and rigid bodies; Clearer discussion on coordinate singularities and their relation to mass matrices and configuration manifolds; Additional discussion of contravariant basis vectors and dual Euler basis vectors, as well as related works in robotics; Improved coverage of navigation equations; Inclusion of a 350-page solutions manual for instructors, available online; A fully updated reference list. Numerous structured examples, discussion of various applications, and exercises covering a wide range of topics are included throughout, and source code for exercises, and simulations of systems are available online at https://rotations.berkeley.edu
