A Treatise on the Analytical Dynamics of Particles and Rigid Bodies
by E. T. Whittaker
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1917
Number of pages: 460
The name Analytical Dynamics is given to that branch of knowledge in which the motions of material bodies, considered as due to the mutual interactions of the bodies, are discussed by the aid of mathematical analysis. There are few books on mathematical mechanics as famous as this, a work that forms a comprehensive account of all the classical results of analytical dynamics.

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