Nonlinear Dynamics

Engineering systems have been traditionally modeled to be linear. However, increasing demands for precision and the fact that many phenomena can not even be predicted qualitatively by linear methods has made nonlinear analysis techniques more and more important. We have focused on mechanical systems. More details can be found in the pages on rotor dynamics, gear dynamics, bearings, robotics, and unmanned systems.
