by Jerrold E. Marsden, Tudor S. Ratiu

**Publisher**: Springer 1998**ISBN/ASIN**: 038798643X**Number of pages**: 549

**Description**:

This volume contains much of the basic theory of mechanics and should prove to be a useful foundation for further, as well as more specialized topics. As the name of the book implies, a consistent theme running through the book is that of symmetry.
