Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emphasizing learning through problem solving, Donald Greenwood analyzes in detail the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to dynamics. He describes techniques that will improve computational efficiency considerably, especially when applied to complex dynamical systems. A key feature of his text is the inclusion of many proven examples and homework problems. The book is intended for use in graduate courses on dynamics and will appeal to practicing mechanical and aerospace engineers.

Synopsis:

Advanced Dynamics is a broad and detailed description of the analytical tools of dynamics. The strengths and weaknesses of various approaches are discussed, and particular emphasis is placed on learning through problem solving. Techniques are described that provide a considerable improvement in computational efficiency over the standard classical methods, especially when applied to complex dynamical systems. Many worked examples and homework problems are provided. The book is intended for use on graduate courses on dynamics, and will also appeal to researchers in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

Synopsis:

A broad and detailed description of dynamics for mechanical and aerospace engineering applications.
