**Provides the basics of spacecraft orbital dynamics plusattitude dynamics and control, using vectrix notation**

*Spacecraft Dynamics and Control: An Introduction*presents the fundamentals of classical control in the context ofspacecraft attitude control. This approach is particularlybeneficial for the training of students in both of the subjects ofclassical control as well as its application to spacecraft attitudecontrol. By using a physical system (a spacecraft) that the readercan visualize (rather than arbitrary transfer functions), it iseasier to grasp the motivation for why topics in control theory areimportant, as well as the theory behind them. The entiretreatment of both orbital and attitude dynamics makes use ofvectrix notation, which is a tool that allows the user to writedown any vector equation of motion without consideration of areference frame. This is particularly suited to the treatment ofmultiple reference frames. Vectrix notation also makes a very cleardistinction between a physical vector and its coordinaterepresentation in a reference frame. This is very important inspacecraft dynamics and control problems, where often multiplecoordinate representations are used (in different reference frames)for the same physical vector.

Provides an accessible, practical aid for teaching andself-study with a layout enabling a fundamental understanding ofthe subjectFills a gap in the existing literature by providing ananalytical toolbox offering the reader a lasting, rigorousmethodology for approaching vector mechanics, a key element vitalto new graduates and practicing engineers alikeDelivers an outstanding resource for aerospace engineeringstudents, and all those involved in the technical aspects of designand engineering in the space sectorContains numerous illustrations to accompany the written text.Problems are included to apply and extend the material in eachchapter

Essential reading for graduate level aerospace engineeringstudents, aerospace professionals, researchers and engineers.

This textbook was used in my Spacecraft Dynamics undergraduate elective course

This textbook was used in my Spacecraft Dynamics undergraduate elective course. Chapter 1 introduces vectrix notation, which I believe is crucial when dealing with complicated dynamic systems, such as those encountered when dealing with orbital mechanics or attitude dynamics.

This is very important in spacecraft dynamics and control problems, where often multiple coordinate representations are used (in different reference frames) for the same physical vector
