We shall describe the advances that took place during the 150 years after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: people such as Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

Analytical dynamics studies the motions of material bodies due to the mutual interactions with the aid of mathematical analysis. Here is a famous book on mathematical mechanics, a comprehensive account of the classical results of analytical dynamics.

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.
