For 30 years, this classic text has been the acknowledged standard in classical mechanics courses.Classical Mechanics enables students to make connections between classical and modern physics – an indispensable part of a physicist’s education. The authors have updated the topics, applications, and notations to reflect today’s physics curriculum. They introduce students to the increasingly important role that nonlinearities play in contemporary applications of classical mechanics. New numerical exercises help students develop skills in the use of computer techniques to solve problems in physics. Mathematical techniques are presented in detail so that the text remains fully accessible to students who have not had an intermediate course in classical mechanics.
