The Effect of Force Type on Stability of Motion

  • David R. Merkin
Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 24)


Liapunov’s methods of investigating stability of motion are powerful methods due to their generality and universality. However, they cannot address the possible effects of various physical factors on stability of motion. Meanwhile, in many cases such an analysis, in a rather general sense, may be very useful. In this chapter we present the effect of various types of forces on stability of motion.
