Book cover: Classical MechanicsClassical Mechanics
by - The Australian National University ,
We develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by a number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian or the Hamiltonian.
