Applied Differential Geometry: A Modern Introduction Hardback
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 for their theory and physicists, as well as other scientists and engineers, a strong theory underlying their models.
