Although, unavoidably, the opening chapters provide only a ‘crash course’ at some points, the material has been written with much care. The author links control theory with a geometric view of classical mechanics in both its Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations, and in particular with the theory of mechanical systems subject to motion constraints.


Back cover copy Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control develops the rich connections between control theory and geometric mechanics. With its extensive illustrations and exercises, this book is eminently suited for a graduate course. With the Collaboration of J.

In addition, the stability, control, and stabilization of mechanical systems are discussed. We can notify you when this item is back in stock.

The aim of the book is to provide a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems, incorporating material that has not yet made its way into texts and monographs. This book can be considered as a mixture between a research monograph and a textbook, conttol a lot of exercises The book also gives a nice history of the development of the methods noholonomic, and it is an excellent resource for references for further reading.

For graduate students with a more traditional engineering mathematics background, portions of this book can be coupled with supplementary reading and example-based introduction of the relevant mathematical concepts. This blich is intended for graduate and advance undergraduate booch in mathematics, physics and engineering who wish to learn this subject and for researchers in the area who want to enhance their techniques.


Detailed illustrations and exercises are included throughout the text. A well-written and comprehensive reference that can be used as a graduate-level textbook, complete with exercises. Geometric Design of Linkages J.

The author should be congratulated for such an admirable job.

The synthesis of topics is appropriate as there is a particularly rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. Bloch Limited preview – The book’s background material in differential geometry, mechanics, and geometric control gives the book a timeless feel, while the extensive coverage of recent research results conveys the vitality nonholonomc the field.
