Thisbook will be of interest to mechanical engineers, aerospace engineers, and engineering science and mechanics faculty. The main objective of the book is to present a mathematically rigorous approach to vibrations, one that not only permits efficient formulations and solutions to problems, but also enhances understanding of the physics of the problem. The book takes a very broad view approach to the subject so that the similarity of dynamic characteristics of vibrating systems will be understood.
