Excerpt from An simple therapy of the idea of Spinning Tops and Gyroscopic Motion
The item of this e-book is to convey in the variety of the abler Mathematicians at our Public colleges and of First yr undergraduates on the Universities, an issue which has hitherto been thought of too tough for any however the extra complicated scholars in arithmetic, whereas even they've got in lots of situations did not derive extra excitement from the research of spinning tops than is contained in filing the matter to the motion of a classy piece of Mathematical equipment which immediately, even though unintelligently, seems the right kind result.
In this try and current an ordinary, and whilst a systematic view of the topic, i've got increased numerous of the suggestive principles recommend in Dynamics of Rotation via Professor Worthington, to whom is due a wide debt of thank you for far liberal feedback and suggestions within the prior chapters, and for permission to borrow his article on Brennan's Monorail.
In my different critics i've been equally lucky. Dr. Besant, Fellow of St. John's university, Cambridge, learn and commented on numerous chapters of their first version of manuscript; and in dedicating this quantity to him i've got endeavoured to specific the curiosity within the topic, and the affection of it, which I owe to his inspiring instructing. Professor Hopkinson of the Engineering Laboratory at Cambridge has additionally learn definite parts, whereas a lot information has been rendered by means of my pal and past due colleague Mr. W. M. web page, Fellow of Kings collage, Cambridge, with whom i've got spent many friendly hours discussing quite a few issues. finally, the entire paintings has been conscientiously criticised through Mr. G. Bistwistle, Fellow and significant Mathematical Lecturer of Pembroke university, Cambridge, to whom my sincerest thank you are due for far time dedicated to the ebook and for lots of invaluable suggestions.
