Abstract : The book is dedicated to the analysis of errors in gyroscopic instruments arising due to rocking of the support base and for other reasons resulting from oscillations of the sensing elements. Nonlinear effects are analyzed and described by equations of second approximation. In many cases, precise equations of movement of the gyroscropic instrument can be investigated. Errors such as shifts and zero drift are determined for various gyroscopic devices for regular and irregular rocking. In the latter case, external excitations are assumed to be random functions of time. The book is designed for engineering-technical and scientific workers, but also may be used as a text for senior students and post-graduate students specializing in the area of applied gyroscopy.
