Book Description

This PDF etextbook; Classical Mechanics: Systems of Particles and Hamiltonian Dynamics (2nd Edition) provides a complete survey on all aspects of classical mechanics in theoretical physics. An enormous number of real worked examples and problems show college students how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems. The etextbook covers Newtonian mechanics in rotating coordinate systems; vibrating systems; mechanics of systems of point particles; and mechanics of rigid bodies. It thoroughly introduces and explains the Lagrange and Hamilton equations and the Hamilton-Jacobi theory. A large section on nonlinear dynamics and chaotic behavior of systems takes Classical Mechanics to newest development in physics.

The new 2nd edition is completely revised and updated. New exercises and new sections in canonical transformation and Hamiltonian theory have been added.

REVIEW

“The 2nd edition of this textbook is based on the 5th German edition of the textbook of W. Greiner and H. Diehl … . this ebook can be very useful to students (and researchers) wishing to study the subject on their own. Many explicitly worked out examples and exercises will be of considerable help in deepening the understanding of new concepts and methods. … Greiner’s physics textbooks are internationally noted for their clarity and completeness. This English etextbook will not be any exception.” (Franz Selig; Zentralblatt MATH; Vol. 1195; 2010)
