Control Theory is at the heart of information and communication technologies of complex systems. It can contribute to meeting the energy and environmental challenges we are facing. The textbook is organized in the way an engineer classically proceeds to solve a control problem, that is, elaboration of a mathematical model capturing the process behavior, analysis of this model and design of a control to achieve the desired objectives. It is divided into three Parts. The first part of the text addresses modeling aspects through state space and input-output representations. The notion of the internal state of a system (for example mechanical, thermal or electrical), as well as its description using a finite number of variables, is also emphasized. The second part is devoted to the stability analysis of an equilibrium point. The authors present classical tools for stability analysis, such as linearization techniques and Lyapunov functions. Central to Control Theory are the notions of feedback and of closed-loop, and the third part of the textbook describes the linear control synthesis in a continuous and discrete-time framework and also in a probabilistic context. Quadratic optimization and Kalman filtering are presented, as well as the polynomial representation, a convenient approach to reject perturbations on the system without making the control law more complex. Throughout the text, different examples are developed, both in the chapters and in the exercises.

This compact and easy-to-read text provides a clear analysis of the principles of equilibrium of rigid bodies in statics and dynamics when they are subjected to external mechanical loads. The book also introduces the readers to the effects of force or displacements so as to give an overall picture of the behaviour of an engineering system. Divided into two parts-statics and dynamics-the book has a structured format, with a gradual development of the subject from simple concepts to advanced topics so that the beginning undergraduate is able to comprehend the subject with ease. Example problems are chosen from engineering practice and all the steps involved in the solution of a problem are explained in detail. The book also covers advanced topics such as the use of virtual work principle for finite element analysis; introduction of Castigliano's theorem for elementary indeterminate analysis; use of Lagrange's equations for obtaining equilibrium relations for multibody system; principles of gyroscopic motion and their applications; and the response of structures due to ground motion and its use in earthquake engineering. The book has plenty of exercise problems-which are arranged in a graded level of difficulty-, worked-out examples and numerous diagrams that illustrate the principles discussed. These features along with the clear exposition of principles make the text suitable for the first year undergraduate students in engineering.

Statics and Dynamics of Rigid Bodies presents an interdisciplinary approach to mechanical engineering through a close evaluation of the statics and dynamics of rigid bodies, presenting a concise introduction to both. This volume bridges the gap of interdisciplinary published texts linking fields like mechatronics and robotics with multi-body dynamics in order to provide readers with a clear path to understanding numerous sub-fields of mechanical engineering. Three-dimensional kinematics, rigid bodies in planar spaces and numerous vector and matrix operations are presented in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of mechanics through dynamics and rigid bodies.

This innovative new text approaches Quantum Mechanics in a manner more closely aligned with the methods used in real modern physics research. Most texts start with a bit of history and then move directly to wave-particle problems with the incumbent heavy mathematical analysis; McIntyre, Manogue, and Tate aim to ground the student’s knowledge in experimental phenomena and use a more approachable, less intimidating, more powerful mathematical matrix model. Beginning with the Stern-Gerlach experiments and the discussion of spin measurements, and using bra-ket notation, Quantum Mechanics introduces students to an important notational system that is used throughout quantum mechanics. This non-traditional presentation is designed to enhance students’ understanding and strengthen their intuitive grasp of the subject, and has been class tested extensively. The text takes advantage of the versatile SPINS software, which allows the student to simulate Stern-Gerlach measurements in succession. This interaction gets to the heart of Quantum Mechanics, and introduces the student to the mathematics they will be using throughout the course. A solid alternative to the classical texts currently available, it is designed for junior- to senior-level Quantum Mechanics courses taken by physics majors.
