We will study some famous and amusing problems. We will recast Newton's mechanics in languages (Lagrangian and Hamiltonian) which are not only practical for many problems but allow the methods of mechanics to be extended into every corner of physics.

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.
