Fundamental Principles of Mechanics

  • Jan Awrejcewicz
Part of the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics book series (AMMA, volume 28)


Mechanics is a branch of physics. In general, mechanics allows one to describe and predict the conditions of rest or movement of particles and bodies subjected to the action of forces. Aristotle was among the first scholars to introduce the term mechanics.
