About the Author

Reza N. Jazar is a professor of mechanical engineering, receiving his master's degree from Tehran Polytechnic in 1990, specializing in robotics. In 1997, he acquired his PhD from Sharif Institute of Technology in nonlinear dynamics and applied mathematics. Prof. Jazar is a specialist in classical and nonlinear dynamics, and has extensive experience in the field of dynamics and mathematical modeling. Prof. Jazar has worked in numerous universities worldwide, and through his years of work experience, he has formulated many theorems, innovative ideas, and discoveries in classical dynamics, robotics, control, and nonlinear vibrations. Razi Acceleration, Theory of Time Derivative, Order-Free Transformations, Caster Theory, Autodriver Algorithm, Floating-Time Method, Energy-Rate Method, and RMS Optimization Method are some of his discoveries and innovative ideas. Some of his recent discoveries in kinematics dynamics were introduced in Advanced Dynamics for the first time. Prof. Jazar has written over 200 scientific papers and technical reports and has authored more than thirty books including Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control, Second Edition and Vehicle Dynamics: Theory and Application.
