Classical Dynamics
by

Publisher: University of Cambridge
Number of pages: 137

Description:
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.
