Title: Conservative Motion of Discrete, Tetrahedral Tops and Gyroscopes
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Tetrahedral tops and gyroscopes are simulated as discrete, rigid bodies in rotation by introducing a molecular mechanics formulation. The conservative, dynamical differential equations are solved numerically in such a fashion that all the system invariants are preserved. Examples which include precession and nutation are described and discussed.
