Understanding the dynamic behavior of complex engineering structures, mechanisms, and components requires more than just a basic course in dynamics, and it requires more than the ability to use computer programs to obtain numerical solutions to problems encountered in practice. Advanced Dynamics extends its readers knowledge from the relatively simple concepts of basic dynamics to the more abstract ideas related to virtual displacements, virtual work, generalized coordinates, and variation principles. The authors' presentation gradually introduces the abstract concepts often intimidating to students, and, while doing so, furnish numerous exercises and worked examples that ease the difficulties often experienced when trying to apply the abstract concepts to physical systems. While their emphasis is on students' understanding and intuition, the authors not only address the methods and means of formulating mathematical models of physical systems, they also discuss methods of solution, including a full chapter on numerical techniques. Designed for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in mechanical engineering, Advanced Dynamics also forms a trustworthy reference for engineers and other professionals working in areas such as robotics, multibody spacecraft, altitude control, and the design of complex mechanical devices.

Separation of the elements of classical mechanics into kinematics and dynamics is an uncommon tutorial approach, but the author uses it to advantage in this two-volume set. Students gain a mastery of kinematics first – a solid foundation for the later study of the free-body formulation of the dynamics problem. A key objective of these volumes, which present a vector treatment of the principles of mechanics, is to help the student gain confidence in transforming problems into appropriate mathematical language that may be manipulated to give useful physical conclusions or specific numerical results. In the first volume, the elements of vector calculus and the matrix algebra are reviewed in appendices. Unusual mathematical topics, such as singularity functions and some elements of tensor analysis, are introduced within the text. A logical and systematic building of well-known kinematic concepts, theorems, and formulas, illustrated by examples and problems, is presented offering insights into both fundamentals and applications. Problems amplify the material and pave the way for advanced study of topics in mechanical design analysis, advanced kinematics of mechanisms and analytical dynamics, mechanical vibrations and controls, and continuum mechanics of solids and fluids. Volume I of Principles of Engineering Mechanics provides the basis for a stimulating and rewarding one-term course for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students specializing in mechanics, engineering science, engineering physics, applied mathematics, materials science, and mechanical, aerospace, and civil engineering. Professionals working in related fields of applied mathematics will find it a practical review and a quick reference for questions involving basic kinematics.

The consideration of time or dynamics is fundamental for all aspects of mental activity -- perception, cognition, and emotion -- because the main feature of brain activity is the continuous change of the underlying brain states even in a constant environment. The application of nonlinear dynamics to the study of brain activity began to flourish in the 1990s when combined with empirical observations from modern morphological and physiological observations. This book offers perspectives on brain dynamics that draw on the latest advances in research in the field. It includes contributions from both theoreticians and experimentalists, offering an eclectic treatment of fundamental issues. Topics addressed range from experimental and computational approaches to transient brain dynamics to the free-energy principle as a global brain theory. The book concludes with a short but rigorous guide to modern nonlinear dynamics and their application to neural dynamics.

Kinematic and dynamic analysis are crucial to the design of mechanism and machines. In this student-friendly text, Martin presents the fundamental principles of these important disciplines in as simple a manner as possible, favoring basic theory over special constructions. Among the areas covered are the equivalent four-bar linkage; rotating vector treatment for analyzing multi-cylinder engines; and critical speeds, including torsional vibration of shafts. The book also describes methods used to manufacture disk cams, and it discusses mathematical methods for calculating the cam profile, the pressure angle, and the locations of the cam. This book is an excellent choice for courses in kinematics of machines, dynamics of machines, and machine design and vibrations.
