The incredible story of the two most high-profile Italian cases in recent history: the story of the Monster of Florence, a serial killer who targeted unmarried couples and terrorized Florence for two decades, and the Amanda Knox case. ´´The Monster of Florence´´: Brunoro and Pezzan write about everything, from the Sardinian Lead to Pietro Pacciani and the picnicking friends, from the satanic-esoteric theory to the Narducci story. This is a detailed map to find a way through this deep mystery. ´´Amanda Knox and the Perugia Murder´´: who killed Meredith Kercher? Was it truly an erotic game gone bad? What pushed Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito to become involved in such an ugly story of sex and drugs, which eventually led to a macabre homicide? With a thorough examination of the technical and scientific evidence, the authors draft a balanced analysis of the facts that highlights the inconsistencies of an incident that still has too many unanswered questions. 1.

The author developed this text over many years, teaching graduate courses in advanced dynamics and flexible multibody dynamics at the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering of the Georgia Institute of Technology. The book presents a unified treatment of rigid body dynamics, analytical dynamics, constrained dynamics, and flexible multibody dynamics. A comprehensive review of numerical tools used to enforce both holonomic and nonholonomic constraints is presented. Advanced topics such as Maggi´s, index-1, null space, and Udwadia and Kalaba´s formulations are presented because of their fundamental importance in multibody dynamics. Methodologies for the parameterization of rotation and motion are discussed and contrasted. Geometrically exact beams and shells formulations, which have become the standard in flexible multibody dynamics, are presented and numerical aspects of their finite element implementation detailed. Methodologies for the direct solution of the index-3 differential-algebraic equations characteristic of constrained multibody systems are presented. It is shown that with the help of proper scaling procedures, such equations are not more difficult to integrate than ordinary differential equations. This book is illustrated with numerous examples and should prove valuable to both students and researchers in the fields of rigid and flexible multibody dynamics.
