Description:
This book provides a rigorous theoretical and mathematical description of the motion of spinning bodies and many practical applications where their gyroscopic properties are used. The book goes into great detail on the theory, design and implementation of gyro-compasses, gyro ship stabilizers, gyro-horizons and many other applications.
