This book addresses the fundamentals, mathematical description and simulation of the dynamics of automobiles. In this context different levels of complexity will be presented, starting with basic single track models up to complex three-dimensional multibody models. A particular focus is the process of establishment of mathematical models from real cars and the validation of the simulation results. The methods presented will be explained in detail based on selected application scenarios.
