Adding References edit

If you would like to add a reference to a book, such as Applied Dynamics by Rutgers Professor Haim Baruh, you can add a reference that appears as a superscript.[1] If you look at the source, you will see a ref name, which makes it possible to cite the reference again like this.[1] At the bottom of this page, you will also find this command {{Reflist}} under References.

Adding Equations edit

Here are examples of adding equations:



The angular velocity vector   defined above may be equivalently expressed as an angular velocity tensor, the matrix (or linear mapping) W = W(t) defined by:
