Applied Mechanics Reviews audio interview: Prof. Anthony Bloch
00 hours, 44 minutes, 27 seconds

Prof. Anthony Bloch of the University of Michigan is a leading scholar and contributor to the fields of geometric mechanics and control of mechanical systems with symmetry, including as co-author of an influential graduate textbook on nonholonomic mechanics and control. This AMR audio interview features his personal recollections of a wonderful story of fundamental discovery in dynamics and control, scientific friends and collaborators, the growth of a technical community, and remarkable connections between applications of engineering dynamics and the mathematics of symmetry and constraints.

About This Journal

The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as the venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity with emphasis on design synthesis. JMD has traditionally served the ASME Design Engineering Division and its technical committees, but it welcomes contributions from all areas of design with emphasis on synthesis. JMD communicates original contributions, primarily in the form of research articles of considerable depth but also technical briefs, design innovation papers, book reviews, and editorials.
