is the abstract of a paper, "Synchronization of Two
Common-Base-Coupled Nonlinear Rotating-Eccentric-Driven Shakers,"
presented at the 1999 ASME Design Engineering Technical Conference, Las Vegas, NV USA
on September 12-15, 1999.

Here Huygens.pdf is the abstract of a paper, "Synchronization of two coupled escapement-driven pendulum clocks," published in JSV Vol. 291, (2006) 566-603.
Also see "A Perturbation Technique that Works Even When the Non-Linearity is Not Small" JSV Vol. 164, No. 1, Jun 8, 1993, pp 1-27, a paper that I wrote with Professor Bapat. Professor Mickens has extended this work in "Generalization of the Senator-Bapat Method to Systems having Limit Cycles," JSV Vol. 224, No. 1, July, 1999, pp167-171.
Here is the abstract of a paper abst_sanct.pdf (44k) about Maimonides' Treatise, "Sanctification of the New Moon." Here is the complete paper new_moon.pdf (152k) Here is a handout hand0.pdf (88k) that I used for a lecture on this Treatise.
Here are the slides shell_talk (1.1M) of a talk I recently gave at the Davidson Laboratory about why sliding seats and short stroke intervals are used for racing shells. This talk is based on a foundation paper, Men_Boats_Oars, that D.L.Pope wrote in 1973, "On the Dynamics of Men and Boats and Oars," and on a follow-up paper, racing_shells, that I wrote in 1981, "Why Sliding Seats and Short Stroke Intervals are Used for Racing Shells."
