Emphasizing learning through problem solving, Donald Greenwood analyzes in detail the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to dynamics. He describes techniques that will improve computational efficiency considerably, especially when applied to complex dynamical systems. A key feature of his text is the inclusion of many proven examples and homework problems. The book is intended for use in graduate courses on dynamics and will appeal to practicing mechanical and aerospace engineers.
Donald T. Greenwood received his PhD from the California Institute of Technology, and is a Professor Emeritus of aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Before joining the faculty at Michigan he worked for the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, and has also held visiting positions at the University of Arizona, the U...
