We shall describe the advances that took place during the 150 years after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: people such as Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

Analytical dynamics studies the motions of material bodies due to the mutual interactions with the aid of mathematical analysis. Here is a famous book on mathematical mechanics, a comprehensive account of the classical results of analytical dynamics.

This text provides the students with the theoretical background of the three dimensional mechanics of rigid body and its applications. This part of mechanics is presented in three parts: Modelling, Analysis and Experimental Investigations.
