Otherwise Calkin’s book is probably the best elementary introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Mechanics available in english. Sherbon marked it as to-read Nov 17, Since Amazon doesn’t have “See Inside” activated for this book, here is a quick rundown of its table of contents: I forgot to mention it, but Calkin’s book includes action-angle variables and Noether’s theorem for both Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms.

Esteban Zambrano marked it as to-read Aug 08, There is also a brief introduction to path integrals and their connection with Hamilton’s principle, and the relation between the Hamilton-Jacobi equation of mechanics, the eikonal equation of optics, and the Schr dinger equation of quantum mechanics. Oct 6 ’16 at Moh’d Hassan marked it as to-read Oct 14, Path integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Lists with This Book. The discussion of topics such as invariance, Hamiltonian-Jacobi theory, and action-angle variables is especially complete; the last includes a discussion of the This text is suitable for a course in classical mechanics at the advanced undergraduate level.

No trivia or quizzes yet. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. I recommend this book for what it is, but be aware that it contains no problems on either rigid bodies or special relativity. In addition, the exercises are excellent and form an essential part of the text, although they tend to be algebraically laborious.


This text, using the simplist possible methods, very carefully covers the details of Analytical Mechanics that are very hard to find elsewhere.

E VincentK. What I think seriously lacks in my course is the big picture; the course mostly focuses on problem solving and the course instructor, along with the textbook, seem to make no meaningful attempt to delineate in some quantitative detail the advantages and disadvantages perhaps of the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation; where does everything come from mathematically rather than just minimizing a functional in analogy with minimizing functions ; discussions on symmetries, conservation laws etc.

This question already has an answer here: Javier rated it it falkin ok Nov 10, The final chapter is an introduction to the dynamics of nonlinear nondissipative systems.


Taylor – I do not own Calkin’s text. Please try again later. For example, Calkin’s book derives in the clearest and most straight-forward way the invariance of Poisson and Lagrange Brackets under canonical transformations. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

A few of the things I didn’t care for were the occasional shady handling of callkin and differential forms, and the odd omission of any mention of chaos in chapter The text contains exercises. What would be the best book to pick up now, before covering these in detail with time capkin after undergraduate, during grad school etc.
