This monograph combines the knowledge of both the field of nonlinear dynamics and non-smooth mechanics, presenting a framework for a class of non-smooth mechanical systems using techniques from both fields. The book reviews recent developments, and opens the field to the nonlinear dynamics community. This book addresses researchers and graduate students in engineering and mathematics interested in the modelling, simulation and dynamics of non-smooth systems and nonlinear dynamics.The formulation of frictional contact problems of mechanical rigid multi- body systems with set-valued contact laws leads ... and Curnier  have presented an augmented Lagrangian approach to the solution of static frictional contact problems.
