About the book

PROBLEMS IN CLASSICAL MECHANICS presents a lucid treatment of the formulations of Lagrangian, Hamiltonian, and the Principles of Calculus of Variations etc. important for the study of modern physics. The study of classical mechanics prepares students to apply the principles and the mathematical tools to solve real life problems. The book also incorporates and discusses in detail topics such as Central Force Motion, Rigid Body Motion and Canonical Transformations.

Key Features

  • • Around 200 solved examples with complete mathematical theory • Around 70 examples given as an exercise to test and develop students understanding • The physical interpretation of the Hamiltonian is highlighted
