Book cover: Introduction to Mechanics and SymmetryIntroduction to Mechanics and Symmetry
by - Springer
This volume contains much of the basic theory of mechanics and should prove to be a useful foundation for further, as well as more specialized topics. As the name of the book implies, a consistent theme running through the book is that of symmetry.
