Control Theory and Nonholonomic Systems. This book aims to present some of this material, often scattered throughout the literature, in a cohesive manner. It is to be expected that Bloch’s book will be a continuing source of inspiration for further research in this area. It will also make a fine textbook for engineering graduate students Table of contents Introduction.

Account Options Sign in. Detailed illustrations and exercises are included throughout the text. Mathematical Foundations of Neuroscience G. The synthesis of topics is appropriate as there is cotrol particularly rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. The book provides a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems that incorporates material not available in other recent texts.

Our goal in this book is to explore some of the connections between control theory and geometric mechanics; that is, we link control theory with a g- metric view of classical mechanics in both its Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations and in particular with the theory of mechanical systems s- ject to motion constraints.

Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control : With the Collaboration of J.Baillieul, P.Crouch and J.Marsden

Description This book explores connections between control theory and geometric mechanics. Although, unavoidably, the opening chapters provide only a ‘crash course’ at some points, the material has been written with much care. The book constitutes an accurate reflection of this work, and covers a broad variety of topics and problems concerning nonholonomic systems and control.

In summary, this is a delightful book that will be valuable for both the control community and researchers working on the geometric theory of nonholonomc systems. The book also gives a nice history of the development of the methods covered, and it is an excellent resource for references for further reading.


The book’s background material Nohholonomic an introduction to many important aspects of the mechanics of nonholonomically constrained systems may be found in such sources as the monograph of Neimark and Fufaev [], the geometric view as well as the control theory of such systems remains largely sc- tered through various research journals.

Control theory is the theory of prescribing motion for dynamical systems rather than describing vi Preface their observed behavior. We use cookies to give annd the best possible experience.
