A textbook for an advanced course in classical mechanics covering: Particle Kinematics; Lagrange's and Hamilton's Equations; Two Body Central Forces; Rigid Body Motion; Small Oscillations; Hamilton's Equations; Perturbation Theory; Field Theory.
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.
