Prof. Anthony Bloch of the University of Michigan is a leading scholar and contributor to the fields of geometric mechanics and control of mechanical systems with symmetry, including as co-author of an influential graduate textbook on nonholonomic mechanics and control. This AMR audio interview features his personal recollections of a wonderful story of fundamental discovery in dynamics and control, scientific friends and collaborators, the growth of a technical community, and remarkable connections between applications of engineering dynamics and the mathematics of symmetry and constraints.
The Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement, and Control publishes theoretical and applied original papers in the traditional areas implied by its name, as well as papers in interdisciplinary areas. Theoretical papers are expected to present new theoretical developments and knowledge for controls of dynamical systems together with clear engineering motivation for the new theory. New theory or results that are only of mathematical interest without a clear engineering motivation or have a cursory relevance only are discouraged. "Application" is taken to include modeling, simulation of realistic systems, and corroboration of theory with emphasis on demonstrated practicality.
