Analytical Mechanics : Solutions to Problems in Classical Physics
The principles and methods of analytical mechanics are very efficient for investigating not only mechanics but also in areas such as field theory, plasma physics, and quantum mechanics. This text presents a short theoretical description of these subjects, followed by solved problems. The authors thoroughly discuss solutions to the problems by taking a comprehensive approach to explore the methods of investigation. They carefully perform the calculations step by step, graphically displaying some solutions via Mathematica® 4.0.
