Stabilization of Rigid Body Dynamics by Internal and External Torques
In this paper we discuss the stabilization of the rigid body dynamics by external torques (gas jets) and internal torques (momentum wheels). We compare the stabilizing quadratic quadratic feedback law for a single external ...
Geometry, Dynamics and Control of Coupled Systems
In this dissertation, we study the dynamics and control of coupled mechanical systems. A key feature of this work is the systematic use of modern geometric mechanics, including methods based on symplectic geometry, Lie ...
