About the book

Motion mechanics in its current form has a lengthy history that harkens back at least 1775 in Euler’s formulations with relatively immediate expansion throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; and a particular renaissance in the late twentieth century accompanying the race between the then-Soviet Union and the United States to spaceflight and its accompanying application toward nuclear deterrence. This book aims to articulate twenty-first century methods; with updates to basic principles like kinematics in the digital age, but also builds the necessary components of modern deterministic artificial intelligence. Modern topics include automatic transient trajectory generation, nonlinear stability analysis of artificial intelligence, and physics-based control of hardware and circuitry including the famous van der Pol equation. Since the very beginning, mathematical singularity has proved challenging. In the previous century, researchers solved kinematic singularities with minimally redundant representations, while actuator singularities remain a persistent challenge. Newly patented methods to safely traverse singularities in the momentum space are also introduced and are illustrated to penetrate singularities without loss of control.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: January 28th 2019

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: April 24th 2019

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: May 1st 2019

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: September 8th 2019

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Skomersic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
