Advanced dynamics deals with the understanding of the dynamic behaviour of complex engineering structures, mechanisms and components and this must be built upon a solid foundation of the basic course in dynamics. Modern technical advancements in areas such as robotics, multibody spacecraft, altitude control and design of complex mechanical devices and mechanisms in industry need a well-bloomed knowledge of advanced dynamics concepts. While the basic dynamics course deals with the simple and easily comprehensive ideas of Newtonian dynamics based on physical space and Newton's laws of motion; Advanced dynamics involves abstract concepts such as virtual displacements, virtual work, generalized coordinates and variation principles.
