Description - Classical Mechanics by R. Douglas Gregory

Mechanics is the study of the motion of physical objects. As such, the subject finds its applications in all areas of physics and engineering. This book provides a complete guide to mechanics, necessary for any applied mathematics student. The author has written a detailed account of classical analytical mechanics that will appeal to the modern student aided by his years of experience as a lecturer in the subject. Topics covered include Newton's, Lagrange's and Hamilton's equations of motion, kinematics, oscillation, particle mechanics and rigid body motion in two and three dimensions. A thorough understanding of the theory is provided by supporting the classical laws of motion with plenty of relevant examples and case studies. Matlab code is also used to illustrate key ideas and solutions to exercises are available to lecturers and course instructors. Solutions to exercices are available from the Web.
