Written for students and engineers, this book provides a comprehensive guide to the derivation of computational models from basic physical and mathematical principles, giving the reader sufficient information to be able to represent the basic architecture of the synthetic environment. Highly relevant to practitioners, the book takes into account the multidisciplinary nature of the aerospace environment and the integrated nature of the models needed to represent it. Topics covered include computational modeling, rotating axis systems, and navigation on an ellipsoidal earth.
All major principles in this book are demonstrated using MATLAB. In addition, an introduction to MATLAB is included in an appendix.
