Dynamics of rigid body. (Динамика твердого тела.) (Russian) Zbl 1004.70002
Moskva: NITS, Regulyarnaya i Khaoticheskaya Dinamika. 384 p. (2001).
The book can be considered as a complete and careful exposition of all known by now integrable cases of motion of rigid body, including motions in a potential field or in a fluid. The exposition is based on a general consideration of equations of motion presented in Hamiltonian form with respect to certain Poisson structures, and on a study of existence of first integrals in such systems. Both classical results and new results belonging to the authors are presented thoroughly, and in many cases the qualitative behaviour of a system is demonstrated by numerical simulations.
