"Explains and summarizes the fundamental derivations, basic and advanced concepts, and equations central to the field of dynamics. Chapters stand as self-study guides-containing tables, summaries of relevant equations, cross references, and illustrative examples. Utilizes Kane's equations and associated methods for the study of large and complex multibody systems."
". . .provides a comprehensive view of the subject, starting from the very basics. . .. . . .recommended to the practicing engineer and to the mature graduate student."
