Reviews

From the reviews: As aptly formulated in its preface, Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control links control theory with a geometric view of classical mechanics in both its Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations and in particular, with the theory of mechanical systems subject to kinematic motion constraints. The analysis and control of mechanical systems has been an active research area over the last several decades. This book aims to present some of this material, often scattered throughout the literature, in a cohesive manner. ! Although, unavoidably, the opening chapters provide only a 'crash course' at some points, the material has been written with much care. In fact, in many cases, the clarity of the presentation is unmatched elsewhere in the literature. ! This book is a welcome addition to the existing literature and will certainly become a standard reference. ! It is to be expected that Bloch's book will be a continuing source of inspiration for further research in this area. ! In summary, this is a delightful book that will be valuable for both the control community and researchers working on the geometric theory of mechanical systems. With its extensive illustrations and exercises, this book is eminently suited for a graduate course. The author should be congratulated for such an admirable job. (A.J. van der Schaft, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, June 2005) ! A well-written and comprehensive reference that can be used as a graduate-level textbook, complete with exercises. The book also gives a nice history of the development of the methods covered, and it is an excellent resource for references for further reading. ! The book's background material in differential geometry, mechanics, and geometric control gives the book a timeless feel, while the extensive coverage of recent research results conveys the vitality of the field. This book will make an excellent reference for students and researchers in differential geometric control. It will also make a fine textbook for engineering graduate students with a background in differential geometry. For graduate students with a more traditional engineering mathematics background, portions of this book can be coupled with supplementary reading and example-based introduction of the relevant mathematical concepts.
