Introduction to Classical Mechanics
|232.30||approx. 7-9 days|
For one/two-semester, sophomore/junior-level courses in Classical Mechanics.
Designed to bridge the gap between introductory college physics and advanced mechanics which will give a strong basis for future work in applied and pure mechanics, especially advanced physics such as quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and optics, this text provides a complete account of the classical mechanics at an intermediate level-with an option of using the state-of-the-art computer-based technology-e.g., Mathcad-in calculations, plots and graphs.
