And even  for a formal language like mathematics it is controversial if consistency is acheivable or necessary like the articles in the firt part of the publication show. Also the role of formal derivations,... more...

    Während noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten die Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Maschinendynamik hauptsächlich den Kolbenmaschinen galt, ist mittlerweile eine Akzentverschiebung zu den Maschinen mit ausschließlich rotierenden Teilen, wie Turbomaschinen und Elektro­ motoren eingetreten. Das hängt einmal damit zusammen, daß Gas­ turbinen, Turbopumpen, Turboverdichter... more...
