Abstract : The phenomenon of azimuthal drift of a gyroscope under the influence of nutational oscillations was discovered in 1955 by K. Magnus. These same results were obtained in experiments by B. T. Plymale, R. Goodstein, V. A. Pavlov, and D. S. Pel'por. In this analysis, the solution of the differential equations of the motion of an equilibrated gyroscope will be done by the method of neutralization of Krylov and Bogolyubov. The equations of the motion of a free gyroscope, taking into consideration the moments of inertia of the wheels of Cardan suspension, are derived by the Lagrange method. (Author)
