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.

The book presents the principles of elementary dynamics, and explains the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible.

This is an engineering statics and dynamics text intended as both an introduction and as a reference. The book emphasizes use of vectors, free-body diagrams, momentum and energy balance and computation. Intuitive approaches are discussed throughout.

We shall describe the advances that took place after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

Analytical dynamics studies the motions of material bodies due to the mutual interactions with the aid of mathematical analysis. Here is a famous book on mathematical mechanics, a comprehensive account of the classical results of analytical dynamics.
