About this Textbook

Advanced Dynamics: Analytical and Numerical Calculations with MATLAB provides a thorough, rigorous presentation of kinematics and dynamics while using MATLAB as an integrated tool to solve problems. Topics presented are explained thoroughly and directly,allowing fundamental principles to emerge through applications from areas such as multibody systems, robotics, spacecraft and design of complex mechanical devices. This book differs from others in that it uses symbolic MATLAB for both theory and applications. Special attention is given to solutions that are solved analytically and numerically using MATLAB. The illustrations and figures generated with MATLAB reinforce visual learning while an abundance of examples offer additional support.

About the authors

Professor Marghitu has been teaching graduate-level dynamics at Auburn University for many years. He is well respected as an author and editor and has several books to his credit, including Mechanisms and Robots Analysis with MATLAB, also published by Springer.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book differs from others due to its use of symbolic MATLAB for both theory and applications. Attention is given to solutions that are solved analytically and numerically using MATLAB. The figures generated with MATLAB reinforce visual learning for students as they study the programs. This book will assist graduate students interested in the classical principles of dynamical systems and can be used primarily for a one semester course in dynamics.” (Ram Krishan Sharma, Mathematical Reviews, September, 2014)

“This is a textbook probably best suited for beginning graduate students in mechanical engineering. The authors also offer the book as being suitable for advanced undergraduates and for self-study via distance learning. The principal feature of the book is the comprehensive integration of MATLAB into the text. … The book is appropriate for the stated audience, and therefore it should be of interest for individual practitioners and for purchase by libraries.” (Ronald L. Huston, zbMATH, Vol. 1292, 2014)
