A Treatise on the Analytical Dynamics of Particles and Rigid Bodies
by E. T. Whittaker
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1917
Number of pages: 460
The name Analytical Dynamics is given to that branch of knowledge in which the motions of material bodies, considered as due to the mutual interactions of the bodies, are discussed by the aid of mathematical analysis. There are few books on mathematical mechanics as famous as this, a work that forms a comprehensive account of all the classical results of analytical dynamics.

Textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies of dynamics. The emphasis is on particle and rigid-body dynamics. The book shows how the classical mechanics methods are applied to the various branches of engineering.

The book presents the principles of elementary dynamics, and explains the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible.

The book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. The author sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective.

We shall describe the advances that took place after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.
