This book is an important reference for any researcher in kinematics, it covers many important results for analysis and design of mechanisms. The authors used the adjective theoretical in the title in order to distinguish the subject from applied kinematics.

The purpose of this text is to provide the students with the theoretical background and engineering applications of the three dimensional mechanics of a rigid body. Covered are three-dimensional kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies.

The book emphasizes the development of general tools to support the analysis of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Explorations of transitions to chaos, nonlinear resonances, and resonance overlap to help the student to develop tools for understanding.

Course objectives: To understand and use the general ideas of force vectors and equilibrium; To understand and use structural analysis and internal force and friction; To understand the ideas of center of gravity, centroids and moments of inertia.

We develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by a number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian or the Hamiltonian.
