This volume contains much of the basic theory of mechanics and should prove to be a useful foundation for further, as well as more specialized topics. As the name of the book implies, a consistent theme running through the book is that of symmetry.

These are course notes for a mathematics graduate course on classical mechanics. The author started with the Lagrangian approach, with a heavy emphasis on action principles, and derived the Hamiltonian approach from that.

This is a two semester introductory classical mechanics text. The coverage of material includes some unusual topics in variational techniques and deterministic chaos. The treatment of relativity is more complete than usual.
