The general treatment of the motion of a rigid body is rather involved and we shall in this book consider only certain special cases. The insights to be gained can be applied in virtually all of theoretical physics, and have important technological ramifications. Applications of the theorems derived stretch from studies of the spin of the electron and rotating atomic nuclei, to investigations of the motion of planets and galaxies.
