Abstract
STUDIES OF THE DYNAMICS AND CONTROL OF FLEXIBLE SPACE STRUCTURES ARE COMPLICATED BY THE DISTRIBUTED-PARAMETER NATURE (PARTIALDIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS) OF THE FUNDAMENTAL DESCRIPTION. RATHER THAN INTRODUCE LUMPED (FINITE-DIMENSIONAL) APPROXIMATIONS AT THE OUTSET, IT IS PROPOSED TO USE MODERN MATHEMATICAL FORMULATIONS TO DEVELOP STATE-SPACE MODELS THAT RETAIN THIS DISTRIBUTED-PARAMETER NATURE. A PRACTICAL PROTOTYPE STRUCTURE IS SUGGESTED FOR STUDY.
