Abstract:

Contents Differential equations of motion of a gyroscope in a gimbal mount Stability of the axis of a rapidly spinning gyroscope Pseudoregular precession of a gyroscope acted on by a constant moment The case of constant friction at the gimbal axes. The representative point method Elementary cases of gyroscope motion in the presence of friction at the gimbal axes Small oscillations of a balanced gyroscope in the presence of friction at the gimbal axes Pseudoregular precession of a gyroscope in the presence of friction at the gimbal axes Motion of a gyroscope in the presence of friction forces proportional to the normal components of the dynamic reactions Present state of the theory of the astatic gyroscope in a gimbal mount.
