Other books for reference:
(You do not need these, but if you want an alternate source, here are
some I know of)
More advanced or at this level:
Herbert Goldstein, Classical Mechanics, 2nd ed. QA805.G6 1980.
This is the book I used before writing mine, and is most similar in
spirit to mine. There is now a third edition, with Poole and Safko,
which includes a chapter on chaos and a minimal treatment of
- Landau and Lifshitz, Mechanics 3rd ed. QA805.L283/1976
- Percival and Richards, Intro. to Dynamics,
Cambridge, 1982 QA614.8.P47 1982. This is where I learned the
most about flows in phase space.
- Arnold, Math. Methods of Classical Mechanics
QA805.A6813/1981. This is the canonical high-brow text.
- Jose and Saletan, Classical Dynamics QA805.J73/1998
- Corben and Stehle, Classical Dynamics
- Matzner and Shepley, Classical Dynamics ISBN 0-13-137076-6
- Talman, Geometric Mechanics ISBN 0-471-15738-4 QC125.2.T35 1999
- More elementary:
- Jerry B. Marion and Stephen T. Thornton,
Classical Dynamics, (3rd ed) QA845.M38 1995
- Keith R. Symon, Mechanics, (3rd ed) QC125.2.S94 1971
- John R. Taylor, Classical Mechanics QC125.2.T39
- A. Douglas Davis, Classical Mechanics QC125.2.D38 1986.
- Kleppner, Daniel and Kolenkow, Robert J.
an Introduction to Mechanics QA805.K62
- French, Newtonian Mechanics QC125.2.F74
- Arya, Introduction to Classical Mechanics
- Mathematical material
- Paul Bamberg and Shlomo Sternberg, A Course in Mathematics
for Students of Physics, 2 QA37.2 B36 1991
