We shall describe the advances that took place after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

A rigorous theoretical and mathematical description of the motion of spinning bodies and practical applications where their gyroscopic properties are used. The book goes into great detail on the theory, design and implementation of applications.
