Summary

This proven and enduring textbook introduces the fundamentals of classical mechanics to undergraduate physics majors. Taking a concise, practical, accessible approach, ANALYTICAL MECHANICS uses a historical perspective to enhance understanding and insight. Examples are presented first, with directness and simplicity, followed by a discussion of fundamental concepts, to help students grasp challenging concepts using more familiar, specific cases. Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics are addressed in Chapter 10 to allow for a more complete presentation. This edition contains a marked emphasis on numerical, worked examples to address student problem-solving needs.
