Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control : Anthony Bloch :
Description This book explores connections between control theory and geometric mechanics. Although, unavoidably, the opening chapters mchanics only a ‘crash course’ at some points, the material has been written with much care. This book is intended for graduate and advance undergraduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering who wish to learn this subject and for researchers in the area who want to enhance their techniques. Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control A.
The book’s background material This book aims to present some of this material, often scattered throughout the literature, in a cohesive manner. Control Theory and Nonholonomic Systems.
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 nnonholonomic 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.

Geometric Optimal Control Heinz Schaettler. Control theory is noholonomic theory of prescribing motion for dynamical systems rather than describing vi Preface their observed behavior. This book will make an excellent reference for students and researchers in differential geometric control. Account Options Sign in. Homogenization and Porous Media Hornung Ulrich.
Table of contents Introduction. Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control A. It is to be expected that Bloch’s book will be a continuing source of inspiration for further research in this area. This book is a welcome addition to the existing literature and will certainly become a standard reference. Bloch Mechnics preview – Bloch No preview available – The author should be congratulated for such an admirable job.
The book constitutes an accurate reflection of this work, snd covers a broad variety of topics and problems concerning nonholonomic systems and contro show more. It encompasses the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian pictures and in its modern form relies heavily on the tools of di?
The book also gives a nice history of the development of the methods covered, and it is an excellent resource for references fontrol further reading. Book ratings by Goodreads.
Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control : With the Collaboration of J.Baillieul, P.Crouch and J.Marsden
The synthesis of topics is appropriate as blocb is a particularly rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. We can notify you when this item is back in stock. In addition, the stability, control, and stabilization of mechanical systems are discussed.
A well-written and comprehensive reference that can be used as a graduate-level textbook, complete with exercises.

The aim is to provide a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems that incorporates material that has not yet made its way into texts and monographs.
Diffusion and Ecological Problems: Both controllability and optimal control are treated, including the Pontryagin maximum principle. Review quote From the reviews: Bloch SpringerNov 5, – Science – pages 0 Reviews https: The book provides a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems that incorporates material not available in other recent texts.
The analysis and control of mechanical systems has been an active research area over the last several decades.

While 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.
