A balanced presentation that encompasses both formalism and structure in analytical dynamics, this text also addresses solution methods. Its remarkably broad and comprehensive exploration of the subject employs an approach as natural as it is logical. In addition to material usually covered in graduate courses in dynamics and nonlinear mechanics, Methods of Analytical Dynamics presents selected modern applications.

Contents include discussions of fundamentals of Newtonian and analytical mechanics, motion relative to rotating reference frames, rigid body dynamics, behavior of dynamical systems, geometric theory, stability of multi-degree-of-freedom autonomous and nonautonomous systems, and analytical solutions by perturbation techniques. Later chapters cover transformation theory, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, theory and applications of the gyroscope, and problems in celestial mechanics and spacecraft dynamics. Two helpful appendixes offer additional information on dyadics and elements of topology and modern analysis. 128 figures. 1970 edition.
