**Classical Dynamics**

by

**David Tong**-

**University of Cambridge**,

**2005**

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

**Elementary Dynamics: a textbook for engineers**

by

**Joseph Whittington Landon**-

**Cambridge University Press**,

**1920**

The book presents the principles of elementary dynamics, and explains the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible.

**Applied Gyrodynamics**

by

**Ervin S. Ferry**-

**John Wiley & Sons**,

**1933**

A rigorous theoretical and mathematical description of the motion of spinning bodies and practical applications where their gyroscopic properties are used. The book goes into great detail on the theory, design and implementation of applications.

**The Key to Newton's Dynamics**

by

**J. Bruce Brackenridge**-

**University of California Press**,

**1996**

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.

**A Treatise on the Analytical Dynamics of Particles and Rigid Bodies**

by

**E. T. Whittaker**-

**Cambridge University Press**,

**1917**

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.
