By John G Papastavridis

This can be a complete, cutting-edge, treatise at the vigorous mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, that's, classical analytical dynamics, and its significant functions to limited platforms (contact, rolling, and servoconstraints). it's a publication on complicated dynamics from a unified perspective, specifically, the kinetic precept of digital paintings, or precept of Lagrange. As such, it maintains, renovates, and expands the grand culture laid by way of such mechanics masters as Appell, Maggi, Whittaker, Heun, Hamel, Chetaev, Synge, Pars, Luré, Gantmacher, Neimark, and Fufaev. Many thoroughly solved examples supplement the speculation, besides many difficulties (all of the latter with their solutions and plenty of of them with hints). even though written at a sophisticated point, the themes lined during this 1400-page quantity (the such a lot huge ever written on analytical mechanics) are eminently readable and inclusive. it truly is of curiosity to engineers, physicists, and mathematicians; complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and lecturers; researchers and pros; all will locate this encyclopedic paintings a unprecedented asset; for lecture room use or self-study. during this variation, corrections (of the unique version, 2002) were included.

Readership: scholars and researchers in engineering, physics, and utilized arithmetic.

J. Rifkin, Time Wars, 1988) The complete history of analytical mechanics, including 20th century contributions, has not been written yet—in English, anyway—and lack of space prevents us from doing so here. However, we hope that the following brief, selective, subjective, and unavoidably incomplete (but essentially correct and fair) summary, and references, will inspire others to pursue such a worthwhile and long overdue task more fully. ) 1750s: General principle of linear momentum (Euler); kinetics of rigid bodies (Euler) 1770s: General principle of angular momentum (Euler); kinematics and geometry of rigid body motion (Euler) Constrained System Mechanics (Energetic mechanics of Lagrange) 1743: Principle of d’Alembert (Jakob Bernoulli !
