has a rich legacy of ideas advanced by numerous researchers including such celebrated mathematicians as d'Alembert, Lagrange, Hamilton, Jacobi, Gauss and Euler. In this volume, the subject matter is developed systematically
with many worked-out problems. Initially, differential variational formulations are described followed by the integral formulations. A detailed account of the essentials of the calculus of variations is provided.
While classical formulations in dynamics have a long history, the complementary formulations are relatively new. This book is the first to provide a detailed development of complementary formulations and also
highlights certain dualities that are revealed as a consequence of the two formulations. A chapter on special applications studies problems of small amplitude oscillations about equilibrium and steady state configurations,
and the problem of impulsive or spike loads. The book ends with historical sketches of the personalities associated with variational methods in dynamics. For structural, mechanical and aeronautical engineers.
This volume can also be recommended as a graduate text in analytic dynamics.
