Advances in Spacecraft Attitude Control by Timothy Sands
English | PDF (True) | 2020 | 288 Pages | ISBN : 1789848024 | 5.9 MB
Spacecraft attitude maneuvers comply with Euler's moment equations, a set of three nonlinear, coupled differential equations. Nonlinearities complicate the mathematical treatment of the seemingly simple action of rotating, and these complications lead to a robust lineage of research. This book is meant for basic scientifically inclined readers, and commences with a chapter on the basics of spaceflight and leverages this remediation to reveal very advanced topics to new spaceflight enthusiasts.
