Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics

Classical Mechanics

Authors: Benacquista, Matthew J., Romano, Joseph D.

  • Contains an early introduction of D’Alembert’s principle, variational principles and Lagrangian & Hamiltonian mechanics 
  • Provides an ideal blend of general concepts and methods which are then applied to important classes of problems
  • Uses Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods at an early stage to give an entirely different way to set up and solve motion problems

About this Textbook

This textbook provides an introduction to classical mechanics at a level intermediate between the typical undergraduate and advanced graduate level. This text describes the background and tools for use in the fields of modern physics, such as quantum mechanics, astrophysics, particle physics, and relativity. Students who have had basic undergraduate classical mechanics or who have a good understanding of the mathematical methods of physics will benefit from this book.
