For more than 30 years, Classical Mechanics has been the standard text for senior and graduate level courses on the subject. This revision retains all the best features of the Second Edition while including new material reflecting advances in nonlinear dynamics, chaos, and fractal geometries.*The text includes comprehensive coverage of all the major topics in mechanics*A new Chapter 10 on nonlinear dynamics and chaos brings the content up to date*Chapter 3 includes a new section on the three-body problem that shows how the general equations can be written in a symmetric fashion, and offers closed form solutions of these equations for two special sets of initial conditions*Chapter 6, Small Oscillations, now includes a description of oscillations in general, and a section on the damped driven pendulum, a device of importance as an analogue of Josephson junctions in superconductivity*Nonintegral problems have been added*Relativity notation has been changed to conform to modern usage*This updated edition no longer covers dated mathematics (i.e., dyadics) or the unnecessary material that had already prepared students for quantum mechanics

Synopsis:

For thirty years this has been the acknowledged standard in advanced classical mechanics courses. This classic text enables students to make connections between classical and modern physics - an indispensable part of a physicist's education. In this new edition, Beams Medal winner Charles Poole and John Safko have updated the text to include the latest topics, applications, and notation, to reflect today's physics curriculum. They introduce students to the increasingly important role that nonlinearities play in contemporary applications of classical mechanics. New numerical exercises help students to develop skills in how to use computer techniques to solve problems in physics. Mathematical techniques are presented in detail so that the text remains fully accessible to students who have not had an intermediate course in classical mechanics.
