**Classical Dynamics**

by David Tong

**Publisher**: University of Cambridge 2005**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.
