Title: Conservative Motion of Discrete, Hexahedral Gyroscope
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Gyroscopic motion is simulated by applying a molecular dynamics formulation to a rigid hexahedron. The conservative dynamical differential equations are solved numerically in such a fashion that all the system invariants are preserved. Examples which included precession, nutation, and a combination of looping and cusp formation are described and discussed.
