Mechanics as a fundamental science in Physics and in Engineering deals with interactions of forces resulting in motion and deformation of material bodies. Similar to other sciences Mechanics serves in the world of Physics and in that of Engineering in a di?erent way, in spite of many and increasing inter- pendencies. Machines and mechanisms are for physicists tools for cognition and research, for engineers they are the objectives of research, according to a famous statement of the Frankfurt physicist and biologist Friedrich Dessauer. Physicists apply machines to support their questions to Nature with the goal of new insights into our physical world. Engineers apply physical knowledge to support the realization process of their ideas and their intuition. Physics is an analytical Science searching for answers to questions concerning the world around us. Engineering is a synthetic Science, where the physical and ma- ematical fundamentals play the role of a kind of reinsurance with respect to a really functioning and e?ciently operating machine. Engineering is also an iterative Science resulting in typical long-time evolutions of their products, but also in terms of the relatively short-time developments of improving an existing product or in developing a new one. Every physical or mathematical Science has to face these properties by developing on their side new methods, new practice-proved algorithms up to new fundamentals adaptable to new technological developments. This is as a matter of fact also true for the ?eld of Mechanics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book, an original monograph on the dynamics of systems of coupled rigid bodies, presents, for the first time in mechanics, a comprehensive treatment of the principles of systems dynamics. It considers mechanical systems that play a major role in the construction of engineering objects. ... In the conclusion of the book, the author considers the application of the modeling of systems of rigid bodies in various scientific fields. ... This book should be of great interest to physicists and engineers." (Gennady Victorovich Gorr, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 b)
