Description:
The basic audience for the second edition of the book remains the same: mathematicians, physicists, and engineers interested in geometrical methods in mechanics, assuming a background in calculus, linear algebra, some classical analysis, and point set topology. The basic results in manifold theory are included, as well as some key facts from point set topology and Lie group theory.

Classical Mechanics
- Wikibooks
Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.

Theoretical Kinematics
by Oene Bottema, Bernard Roth - Dover Publications
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.
