Writing for graduate-level students of aerospace engineering, Stevens (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Lewis (U. of Texas at Arlington) have revised and updated their introduction to six-degrees-of-freedom aircraft modeling and simulation. Issues of gravitation and geodesy are covered. The small-perturbation theory of aerodynamic forces and moments is also described. MATLAB and Fortran simulation code is provided for the demonstration of control theory, computer-aided design techniques, and numerical algorithms. Classical control design, modern design techniques, multivariable frequency-domain techniques, and digital control each get their own chapter. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
