## General Problem of the Stability Of MotionThis book makes more widely accessible the text of Lyapunov's major memoir of the general problem of the stability of motion. Translated by A. T. Fuller (University of Cambridge), the work is now available for the first time in the English language, and marked the centenary of the Russian publication in the late 1800s. Including a biography of Lyapunov and a comprehensive bibliography of his work, this excellent volume will prove to be of fundamental interest to all those concerned with the concept of the stability of motion, boundaries of stability, and with nonlinear dynamics. |
