Hi Brent,

I love what I call "hard-core" mathematics. Its what I am all about. Take a look at this paper, for example. I suspect that you have looked at some of my discussions, but if not, here is a link to that.

Here is link to the MatrixPilot home page, and to the main users group.

Best regards,

Bill

Brent,

As a math guy, I think you might find the following to be very interesting:

AIAA-4228-375.pdf

AIAA-4242-557.pdf

Collection of Mahony's papers.

Best regards,

Bill
