The volume aims at giving a comprehensive and up-to-date view of modern methods of analytical mechanics (general equations, invariant objects, stability and bifurcations) and their applications (rigid body dynamics, celestial mechanics, multibody systems etc.). The course is at an advanced level. It is designed for postgraduate students, research engineers and academics that are familiar with basic concepts of analytical dynamics and stability theory. Although the course deals with mechanical problems, most of the concepts and methods involved are equally applicated to general dynamical systems. von Rumyantsev, Valentin V. und Karapetyan, Alexander V.
