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.

Textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies of dynamics. The emphasis is on particle and rigid-body dynamics. The book shows how the classical mechanics methods are applied to the various branches of engineering.
by Martin Scholtz - Charles University
Contents: Classical mechanics; Lagrange equations; Hamilton's equations; Variational principle; Hamilton-Jacobi equation; Electromagnetic field; Discrete dynamical systems and fractals; Dynamical systems; Bifurcations; Commands in Mathematica.
