Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

Announcements of new books are always
welcome, but these should be written as a press
release rather than an advertisement. The Biomch-L
moderators will usually edit such contributions prior
to distribution.

Title : Analytical Biomechanics - Modeling and Optimal Controller Designs
Author : Asif Mahmood Mughal, PhD
Publisher : VDM Verlag
ISBN :9783639159219

This book provides new analytical modeling schemes to biomechanical
movements, physiological motor control and combined
musculoskeletal models with neurophysiologic
controller to emulate muscle commands and joint
torques. This book discusses the details of optimal
controls with physiological cost functions to analyze
the human sit-to-stand task for healthy and stroke
patients. The biomechanical framework uses Maple and
Matlab environments for modeling, control and
simulation purposes. Major part of this work is
peer-reviewed, and holds great potential to study
task specific applications in kinesiology,
ergonomics, and rehabilitation robotics, biomedical
engineering and experimental validation of human
voluntary movements.
