"Several mathematicians have solved the problems of motion of the top and gyroscope most completely, but none of them have considered in their solutions the effects of the supporting gimbal rings upon the motion or the effects of a variable rotor speed. It is the purpose of this paper to investigate the top equations by two well known methods; namely, by the method of Lagrange and by the method of Jacobi; considering in both the dynamics of the gimbal rings and varying rotor speed"--Introduction, page 3.
