    Description

    Mathematical models of
    mechanical systems exhibit
    instability if the stiffness
    matrices are indefinite.
    Under certain circumstances
    such systems may be
    stabilized by adding
    gyroscopic terms. The
    investigation includes
    specific systems (e.g. a
    simple model of a spaceship)
    as well as the mathematical
    behaviour of general systems
    in the vicinity of multiple
    eigenvalues.
