Applied Differential Geometry
A Modern IntroductioneBook - 2007
This graduate-level monographic textbook treats applied differential geometry from a modern scientific perspective. Co-authored by the originator of the world?s leading human motion simulator??Human Biodynamics Engine?, a complex, 264-DOF bio-mechanical system, modeled by differential-geometric tools? this is the first book that combines modern differential geometry with a wide spectrum of applications, from modern mechanics and physics, via nonlinear control, to biology and human sciences. The book is designed for a two-semester course, which gives mathematicians a variety of applications.
