about this item

Formalskii explores systems that require a certain degree of control in order to behave in a desired way, that is, systems that are unstable if no controlling force is affecting their motion. He covers devices containing a single-link pendulum, double physical pendulum, ball on a beam, the gyroscopic stabilization of a two-wheeled bicycle, and avoiding undesired vibrations. Among his topics are a pendulum with a wheel-based pivot, an optimal control design for swinging and damping a double pendulum, the global stabilization of an inverted pendulum controlled by torque in the pivot, designing a control law to stabilize the bicycle tilt, and trapezoidal control for a system with compliant elements.
