**Lecture Notes on Classical Mechanics**

by Sunil Golwala

**Publisher**: California Institute of Technology 2007**Number of pages**: 396

**Description**:

These notes cover classical mechanics and special relativity at a level of sophistication beyond the introductory sequence. You will learn a variety of new techniques and formalism that will allow you to attack a wider set of problems than you saw in the introductory sequences as well as provide you a deeper, more unified understanding of the structure and fundamental principles of classical physics.
