Description - Applied Dynamics by Francis C. Moon

For almost a decade now, this textbook had been at the forefront in using modern analytical and computational codes and in addressing novel developments. Already used by numerous institutions for their courses, this second edition has been substantially revised, with new sections on biomechanics and micro- and nanotechnology. There is also more coverage of robotics, multibody simulations and celestial mechanics. Numerous examples have been added and problems, partly using MATLAB, have been included.
