In their look for strategies to difficulties about the dynamics of the Earth as a self-gravitating physique, the authors have utilized the basics present in their publication “Jacobi Dynamics” (1987, Reidel). First, satellite tv for pc observations have proven that the Earth doesn't stay in hydrostatic equilibrium, which types the actual foundation of recent geodynamics. Secondly, satellite tv for pc info have validated a dating among the planet’s polar second of inertia and the potential for the Earth’s outer strength box, which proves the main simple element of Jacobi dynamics. This allowed the authors to revise their derivation of the classical virial theorem, introducing the concept that of a volumetric strength and volumetric second, and to be able to receive a generalized virial theorem within the type of Jacobi’s equation.

The major dynamical results are: the kinetic power of oscillation of the interacting debris, and is the reason the actual that means and nature of gravitational forces; separation of shells of a self-gravitating physique with appreciate to its mass density; changes in angular velocities of the shell’s rotation; continuity in variance of the opportunity of the outer gravitational strength box, including savings within the envelope of the interacting plenty (volumetric middle of gravity); the character of Earth, Moon and satellite tv for pc precession; the character and producing mechanism of the planet’s electromagnetic box; the typical nature of gravitational and electromagnetic power, and different comparable concerns.

The paintings is a logical continuation of the ebook "Jacobi Dynamics" and is meant for researchers, lecturers and scholars engaged in theoretical and experimental examine in numerous branches of astronomy, geophysics, planetology and cosmogony, and for college students of celestial, statistical, quantum and relativistic mechanics and hydrodynamics.

The relation between potential and kinetic energy. In the case of constancy of its left-hand side, when motion of the system happens with a constant velocity, the equation acquires conditions of hydrostatic equilibrium of a system in the outer force field. , the second derivative with respect to the Jacobi function, expresses oscillation of the polar moment of inertia of the system, which, in fact, is kinetic energy of the inner volumetric torques of the interacting mass points moving in accordance with Kepler’s laws.

6 Newton’s Model of Hydrostatic Equilibrium of a Uniform Earth 17 demonstrated by Newton in Book III “The System of the World”, where in Theorem II he notes that gravity forces from the planets are directed to the Sun. In Theorem IХ he says that attraction of the planets themselves goes from their surfaces to the centers. According to Newton’s idea the planet’s surface is an area of formation of absolute value of the centripetal force from where it emits that force upward and downward. The accelerating value of the centripetal force by Newton’s definition, is a measure proportional to velocity which it develops over a long time.

He was twice invited to work in the St-Petersburg Academy of Sciences where he spent more than 30 years. The spectrum of Euler’s scientific interests was very wide. In addition to mathematics and physics they included theory of elasticity, theory of machines, ballistics, optics, shipbuilding, theory of music and even the insurance business. But 3/5 of the works were devoted to mathematical problems. In mechanics Euler developed a complete theory of motion of the rigid (nondeformable) body. His dynamic and kinematics equations became the main mathematical instrument in solution of rigid body problems.
