Abstract : This book is intended for students of military academies and institutes of higher education, as well as for engineering and technical personnel concerned with the immediate problems of the operation and testing of control systems, or with related problems. The various sections of the book, which are a comprehensive description of the physical processes, may be recommended for readers with intermediate technical education. The principles of building guidance systems, as well as the mathematical bases for calculating these systems, are examined on the basis of materials published in the domestic and foreign literature. There is a discussion of modern engineering methods of calculating complex systems of automatic regulation, and the basic methods and physical nature of the linearization of nonlinear systems are outlined. The physical principles of guiding rockets of various aerodynamic configurations, as well as the basic mathematical relationships describing the motion of rockets, are presented. (Author)
