Geometry of Masses

  • Jan Awrejcewicz
Part of the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics book series (AMMA, volume 28)


Let us consider a system of particles \({A}_{n}\ (n = 1,\ldots,N)\) of masses m n and radius vectors r n with respect to a certain adopted coordinate system OX 1 X 2 X 3 (see also [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]).
