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.

This text provides the students with the theoretical background of the three dimensional mechanics of rigid body and its applications. This part of mechanics is presented in three parts: Modelling, Analysis and Experimental Investigations.

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.
