By John L. Junkins

This monograph has grown out of the authors' contemporary paintings directed towards fixing a kin of difficulties which come up in maneuvering sleek spacecraft. The paintings levels from basic advancements in analytical dynamics and optimum keep watch over to an important number of instance functions. the first emphasis herein is upon the main primary analytical and numerical tools for selecting optimum rotational maneuvers of spacecraft. The authors concentration specifically upon the big attitude nonlinear maneuvers, and in addition think of huge rotational maneuvers of versatile cars with simultaneous vibration suppression/arrest. every one bankruptcy incorporates a checklist of references. The e-book offers a lot new fabric to be able to be of significant curiosity to practicing pros and complex graduate scholars operating within the common components of spacecraft know-how, utilized arithmetic, optimum regulate idea, and numerical optimization. bankruptcy eleven particularly provides new details that may be came across broadly worthy for terminal keep watch over and monitoring maneuvers
