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

by E. T. Whittaker

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 1917**ISBN/ASIN**: 0521358833**Number of pages**: 460

**Description**:

The name Analytical Dynamics is given to that branch of knowledge in which the motions of material bodies, considered as due to the mutual interactions of the bodies, are discussed by the aid of mathematical analysis. There are few books on mathematical mechanics as famous as this, a work that forms a comprehensive account of all the classical results of analytical dynamics.
