A complete set of lecture notes for an upper-division classical dynamics course. The course concentrates on those aspects of classical dynamics which can be studied analytically. Topics covered include oscillations, Keplerian orbits, two-body scattering, rotating frames of reference, rotation of rigid bodies in three dimensions, Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics, and coupled oscillations.

Lecture notes for a course on differential equations covering differential calculus, Picard's method, local structure of vector fields, sums and Lie products, self-adjoint operators on Hilbert space, commutative multiplicity theory, and more.
by Joseph Whittington Landon - Cambridge University Press
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.

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 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.
