Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Advances in the study of dynamical systems have revolutionized the way that classical mechanics is taught and understood. Classical Dynamics, first published in , is a comprehensive textbook that provides a complete description of this fundamental branch of physics.

The authors cover all the material that one would expect to find in a standard graduate course: Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics, canonical transformations, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, perturbation methods, and rigid bodies. They also deal with more advanced topics such as the relativistic Kepler problem, Liouville and Darboux theorems, and inverse and chaotic scattering.

A key feature of the book is the early introduction of geometric differential manifold ideas, as well as detailed treatment of topics in nonlinear dynamics such as the KAM theorem and continuum dynamics including solitons. The book contains many worked examples and over homework exercises. It will be an ideal textbook for graduate students of physics, applied mathematics, theoretical chemistry, and engineering, as well as a useful reference for researchers in these fields.

Customer reviews. How does Amazon calculate star ratings? Amazon calculates a product's star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average.

The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.

Verified Purchase. I think that any physicists should know s the book by H. Goldstein "Classical Mechanics" which is one of best textbook ever written. Well, "Classical Dynamics: A Contemporary Approach " is, in my opinion, an excellent updated version of the book by Goldstein. It contains new topics like non-linear dynamics, and a final chapter, about continuum dynamics, including classical field theory and fluid dynamics, both discussed from a modern perspective.

You will find discussion about solitons and spinors, sine-Gordon and KdV equations, and much, much more. Each chapter offers several Worked Examples and many homeworks. This a "real" textbook and one can learn a lot from it.

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Book contents is good, it is one of the source books I use to teach Classical Mechanics at the graduate level.

However, I give it a one star because, as the photo shows, it started to fall apart after about a week of use. Translate review to English. Todo detallado. Muchos ejemplos. Not for the faint at heart. This books uses it all, tensor's, the form's approach and more. This book really is for a post-doc. It does all the background things that most books use smoke and mirror's to do. If the word tensor or one-form's scare you or never heard of, forget this book.

This book is not for anyone at, at least the post-doc. If you can understand the book 'Geometrical method's of mathematical physics', by Schultz and can understand it then go for it. I would call this book not even at the level of a grad.

Sorry, it is true. If you can understand this book, "How much you will have advanced. You can get here but it takes time and a lot of coursework to get here. This book is a very nice work on classical mechanics. The part of non-dynamical systems is well discussed and exemplified.

In addition, the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms are well posed and discussed with good exercises. Nice book to have as a reference. Load more international reviews. Very happy, the book came on-time. The book is fantastic, but the printing seems lower than average quality. The words in my book appear dull in the same way as when a printer is about to run out of ink.

It's a good book but the notation is awfull. Where light usage is being defined as opening the book, turning pages, reading the pages, and then closing the book.

Occasionally the book is open for a few hours on a couple pages while working through a few exercises. Also note that I, as a student, have been through a lot of text books and have treated them in varying degrees of care I used Griffith's EM heavily but carefully and it is standing the test of time, while my copy of Shankar's Principles of QM definitely shows the beating I put into it.

But this book is by far the easiest and fastest a book has ever fallen apart on me. Bottom Line: This book is too expensive for how quickly and easily it can fall apart. A nice book, with modern terminology and up to date. Explains and uses linear forms and is fairly explicit. Covers most subjects, useful for beginners and to look things up. Nice book. Discuss application of geometry in quite a detail, although not very deep and modern compared to current mathematics development.

One person found this helpful. Mediocre classical dynamics book compared to Classical Dynamics by Merriam and Thronton. Goldstein is an alternative but is not written as well.
