About these proceedings

Introduction

The book combines vehicle systems dynamics with the latest theoretical developments in dynamics of non-smooth systems and numerical analysis of differential-algebraic dynamical systems with discontinuities. These two fields are fundamental for the modelling and analysis of vehicle dynamical sytems. The results are also applicable to other non-smooth dynamical systems.

Keywords

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is a collection of papers from the above colloquium. The papers are grouped into three categories: problems in vehicle dynamics, dynamics of nonsmooth problems, and numerical analysis of nonsmooth problems. It is aimed at researchers interested in problems of vehicle dynamics.” (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 31, February, 2011)
