Abstract : This report contains a series of lectures on applied mathematics and aeroballistics delivered during the summer of 1950. The methods described in this report are applicable to the calculations of lift and moment of shells, finned missiles and fuselages, including the effects of yaw and body-fin interference. The report is written in three sections: (1) The Zone Method in Aeroballistic Problems; (2) Fourier Transformation Methods in Aeroballistics; and (3) The Accuracy of Rayleigh's Method for the Estimation of Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues.
