Newton's Principia : the mathematical principles of natural philosophy
by Isaac Newton
Publisher: Daniel Adee 1846
Number of pages: 600
This book is a complete volume of Newton's mathematical principles relating to natural philosophy and his system of the world. Newton, one of the most brilliant scientists and thinkers of all time, presents his theories, formulas and thoughts. Included are chapters relative to the motion of bodies; motion of bodies in resisting mediums; and system of the world in mathematical treatment; a section on axioms or laws of motion, and definitions.

From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
by Jeremy Heyl - The University of British Columbia
Contents: Linear Motion; Energy and Angular Momentum; The Principle of Least Action; Central Forces; Rotating Frames; Conservative Systems; Many-Particle Systems; Rigid Bodies; Continuum Mechanics; Small Oscillations and Perturbed Motion; etc.

The purpose is to develop an accurate physical, conceptual, geometric, and pictorial understanding of important mechanics topics, from basic principles through Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, including rotation, oscillations, and more.

The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body. Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation are also included.
