By Jorge V. José,Eugene J. Saletan

Advances within the examine of dynamical structures have revolutionized the way in which that classical mechanics is taught and understood. Classical Dynamics, first released in 1998, is a complete textbook that offers an entire description of this basic department of physics. The authors hide the entire fabric that one may look forward to finding in a typical graduate direction: Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics, canonical ameliorations, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, perturbation equipment, and inflexible our bodies. additionally they care for extra complicated subject matters corresponding to the relativistic Kepler challenge, Liouville and Darboux theorems, and inverse and chaotic scattering. A key characteristic of the booklet is the early advent of geometric (differential manifold) principles, in addition to unique remedy of themes in nonlinear dynamics (such because the KAM theorem) and continuum dynamics (including solitons). The publication includes many labored examples and over two hundred homework workouts. it will likely be a terrific textbook for graduate scholars of physics, utilized arithmetic, theoretical chemistry, and engineering, in addition to an invaluable reference for researchers in those fields. A suggestions handbook is offered solely for instructors.
