The book is intended for students at the level of undergraduate and graduate studies in physics, engineering, astronomy, applied mathematics and for researchers working in related subjects. We hope that the original presentation and the distribution of the topics, the various applications in many branches of physics and the set of more than 100 proposed problems, shall make this book a comprehensive and useful tool for students and researchers.
From the preface:
"This first volume contains problems of classical mechanics including kinematics and statics. It is recommended as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and civil engineering and applied physics as well as for researchers and engineers dealing with mechanics. It could also be a main reference for other courses, but it is suited for a course in statics and dynamics."
From the preface:
"It is focused on presenting a unique approach, rooted in classical mechanics, to studying mechanical and electromagnetic processes occurring in applied mechanics and mechatronics. In contrast to the majority of books devoted to applied mechanics, this volume places particular emphasis on theory, modeling, and analysis and control of gyroscopic devices, including military applications."
