Lagrangian Mechanics: An Advanced Analytical Approach (PDF) explains the subtleties of analytical mechanics and its applications in rigid body mechanics. The expert authors demonstrate the primordial role of parameterization; which conditions the equations and thus the information obtained; the essential notions of virtual kinematics; such as the virtual derivative and the dependence of the virtual quantities with respect to a reference frame; and the key concept of perfect joints and their intrinsic character; namely the invariance of the fields of compatible virtual velocities with respect to the parameterization.
Throughout the ebook; any demonstrated results are stated with the respective hypotheses; clearly indicating the applicability conditions for the results to be ready for use. Numerous examples accompany the textbook; facilitating the understanding of the calculation mechanisms.
The ebook is mainly intended for Master’s; Bachelor’s; or engineering students who are interested in an in-depth study of analytical mechanics and its applications.
