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.

Lecture notes for a course on differential equations covering differential calculus, Picard's method, local structure of vector fields, sums and Lie products, self-adjoint operators on Hilbert space, commutative multiplicity theory, and more.
by Joseph Whittington Landon - Cambridge University Press
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.

The book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. The author sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective.
