The synthesis is appropriate as there is a rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. Check out the top books of the year on our page Vloch Books of The synthesis of topics is appropriate as there is a particularly rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory.

Bloch SpringerNov 5, – Science – pages 0 Reviews https: A well-written and comprehensive reference that can be used as a graduate-level textbook, complete with exercises.

Selected pages Page xxi. Nonlinear Systems Shankar Sastry. Control theory is the theory of prescribing motion for dynamical systems rather than describing vi Preface their observed behavior. 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.

This synthesis of topics is appropriate, since there is a particularly rich connection between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. It will also make a fine textbook for engineering graduate students with a background in differential geometry.

Control theory is linked with a geometric view of classical mechanics in both its Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations and lboch with the theory of nonholonomic mechanics mechanical systems subject to motion constraints. The author links control theory with a geometric view of classical blpch in both its Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations, and in particular with the theory of mechanical systems subject to motion constraints. The book provides a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems that incorporates material not available in other recent texts.

This book is intended for graduate students who wish to learn this subject and researchers in the area who want to enhance their techniques. Both controllability and optimal control are treated, including the Pontryagin maximum principle.

### Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control – A.M. Bloch – Google Books

In summary, this is a delightful book that will be valuable for both the control community and researchers working on the geometric theory of mechanical systems. Our aim is to provide a uni? Our goal in this book is to explore some of the connections between control theory and nonhollonomic 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.

The aim of the book is to provide a unified treatment of nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems, incorporating material that has not yet made its way into texts and monographs.

In addition, the stability, control, and stabilization of mechanical systems are discussed. Review Text From the reviews: The book’s background material in differential geometry, mechanics, and geometric control gives the book a timeless feel, while the extensive coverage of recent research results conveys the nonholobomic of the field.

Bloch’s book will be a continuing source of inspiration for further research in this area. Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control. Although, unavoidably, the opening chapters provide only a ‘crash course’ at some points, the material has been written with much care.

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.
