Summary

This new edition of a proven and enduring textbook introduces the fundamentals of classical mechanics to undergraduates with a calculus background. The new edition retains the clear, practical approach, but updates all the appropriate material and uses examples more extensively. Analytical Mechanics uses the historical perspective for enhancing understanding and insight. Examples are presented first, followed by discussion of fundamental concepts, helping students to grasp challenging concepts from more familiar, specific cases.

Features

  • Overview of historical development is followed by a discussion of the theory of gravitation and planetary motion, helping students see how laws of mechanics developed from real problem-solving efforts.
  • Examples follow derivations and discussion of concepts, enabling students to make instant connections between concepts and their applications to practical problem-solving
