Description:
The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body in two dimensions. So important are Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation, that this subject has also been included.
