**An Introduction to Lagrangian Mechanics**

by Alain J. Brizard

**Publisher**: Saint Michael's College, Colchester 2007**Number of pages**: 232

**Description**:

These lecture notes are meant to provide a self-consistent introduction to Classical Mechanics without the need of any additional material. They are normally used for an intermediate course in Classical Mechanics by inserting a more general and rigorous introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods suitable for undergraduate physics students at sophomore and junior levels.
