About the book
Classical Mechanics discusses the fundamental topics in fourteen chapters beginning with a brief review of principles of mechanics in chapter 1. The next two chapters present the equation of motion and reference frames followed by two chapters on Lagrange’s equation and Hamilton’s equations. Conservation laws, two-body central problem, collisions. Transformation theory, Poissons’ brackets and Hamilton-Jacobi equation, small oscillations motion of a rigid body and relativistic mechanics form the balance chapters.
• A large number of solved and unsolved problems
• Extensive bibliography
