About this book

Introduction

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.

Reviews

“The book is written such that for each topic to be understood, each topic is presented with the minimum necessary material. This is good for those who do not like to waste time by reading unnecessary pages and pages discussing the same subject. The examples are very well chosen, they are the ones that every serious student of the subject must know.” (P. R. S. Carvalho, zbMATH 1408.70001, 2019)
