Newtonian mechanics and special relativity for students with good preparation in physics and mathematics at the level of the advanced placement curriculum. Topics include an introduction to Lagrangian mechanics, Noether's theorem, special relativity, collisions and scattering, rotational motion, angular momentum, torque, the moment of inertia tensor, oscillators damped and driven, gravitation, planetary motion, and an introduction to cosmology.

This book introduces variational principles, and illustrates the intellectual beauty, the remarkable power, and the broad scope, of applying variational principles to classical mechanics. Applications presented cover a wide variety of topics ...

We will study some famous and amusing problems. We will recast Newton's mechanics in languages (Lagrangian and Hamiltonian) which are not only practical for many problems but allow the methods of mechanics to be extended into every corner of physics.

The book emphasizes the development of general tools to support the analysis of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Explorations of transitions to chaos, nonlinear resonances, and resonance overlap to help the student to develop tools for understanding.

An important reference for any researcher in kinematics, it covers many important results for analysis and design of mechanisms. The authors used the adjective theoretical in the title in order to distinguish the subject from applied kinematics.
