Exploring Classical Mechanics: A Collection of 350+ Solved Problems for Students, Lecturers, and Researchers - Second Revised and Enlarged English Edition

G. L. Kotkin and V. G. Serbo

Abstract

This book was written by the working physicists for students and teachers of physics faculties of universities. Its contents correspond roughly to the corresponding course in the textbooks Mechanics by L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz (1976) and Classical Mechanics by H. Goldstein, Ch. Poole, and J. Safko (2000). As a rule, the given solution of a problem is not finished with obtaining the required formulae. It is necessary to analyse the results, and this is of great interest and by no means a mechanical part of the solution. The authors consider classical mechanics as the first chapter of the ... More

Keywords: Lagrangian equation, Hamiltonian equation, Hamilton-Jacobi, cross sections, oscillations, rigid-body motion, canonical transformations, adiabatic invariants
