Lagrangian Mechanics, Dynamics, and Control

Publisher: Queen's University
Number of pages: 271

Description:
These notes deal primarily with the subject of Lagrangian mechanics. Matters related to mechanics are the dynamics and control of mechanical systems. The control theory we discuss here is quite elementary, and does not really touch upon some of the really challenging aspects of the subject. It will serve to give a flavour of the subject so that people can see if the area is one which they'd like to pursue.

Lagrangian mechanics is widely used in several areas of research and technology. It is simply a reformulation of the classical mechanics by the mathematician Joseph-Louis Lagrange in 1788. Since then, this approach has been applied to various fields.
