Aerospace Vehicle Dynamics and Control by Alan V. Cook
Rapid developments in computer technology have dramatically affected the analysis, synthesis, and control of aerospace vehicle dynamics. As new challenges emerge in the wake of the recent shift in emphasis from military to civil applications, research concerning aerospace vehicle dynamics has had far-reaching implications in terms of performance, safety, and operational cost effectiveness. This collection of papers covers a wide range of pertinent topics, including mathematical modelling, computational methods, computer simulation, and developments in control systems. This interesting and timely collection will be of interest to students, engineers, and researchers in applied mathematics and aerospace engineering.
