Here is the listing of Best reference books on Control of Langrangian and Hamiltonian Systems.
|1. “Introduction to Mechanics and Symmetry” by J.E. Marsden and T.Ratiu
Book Review: This book very nicely demonstrates the development of basic theory and mechanics applications thereby stressing on the role of symmetry. The book contains many numerous specific applications thereby making it very useful to engineers and physicists. The book is backed up with many examples and applications that demonstrates how the theory works and this book is very useful for graduate and undergraduate students pursuing mathematics, physics and engineering.
|2. “Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control” by A.M.Bloch
Book Review: The book very nicely demonstrates the connections between control theory and geometric mechanics in both lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations. The book also deals with the mechanical systems theory that is subjected to motion constraints. The book also shows the strong connection that exists between mechanics and nonlinear control theory. The book also deals with nonlinear control theory and constrained mechanical systems. The book is very useful to graduate students and researchers who want to enhance their techniques in nonholonomic mechanics and control.
|3. “Symmetry in Mechanics: A Gentle, Modern Introduction” by Stephanie Frank Singer|
