... and there follows a further discussion of integrability including Frobenius’ theorem. The central equation and its explicit transpositional form are presented. There is a comparison of integral methods by means of examples. Chapter 6 presents some basic principles of numerical analysis and explains ...

The compound phrase preprinciple or foreprinciple is here applied as an explicit statement whose truthfulness is not subject to re-questioning, but which theoretical mechanics as a natural science (philosophy) about motion of bodies starts from. The preprinciples are the basic starting point in the ...
