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.
The classic approach of this leading text has been revised and updated without increasing the overall
length of the book.
NEW - NEW! Chapter 11 on classical chaos theory builds from the Hamilton-Jacobi theory to introduce
nonlinear dynamics and fractal dimensionality as it relates to classical mechanics.
REVISED! Chapter 7 now presents special relativity using the standard real metric (in lieu of the
complex Minkowski space) and coordinate-free notation, and includes a brief introduction to the
concepts of general relativity.
UPDATED! A section on the Euler and Lagrange exact solutions to the three-body problem has been
added to Chapter 3.
UPDATED! A section on the damped driven oscillator as an example of the workings of the Josephson
junction has been added to Chapter 6.
REVISED! Chapter 12 on Canonical Perturbation Theory has been streamlined and the mathematics
has been simplified.
NEW - NEW! Approximately 45 new problems, mostly in Chapters One through Eight and Eleven.
Problem sets are now helpfully divided into "Derivations" and "Exercises."
