This book takes a traditional approach to the development of the methods of analytical dynamics. After a review of Newtonian dynamics, the basic concepts of analytical dynamics - classification of constraints, classification of forces, virtual displacements, virtual work and variational principles - are introduced and developed. Next, Langrange's equations are derived and their integration is discussed. The Hamiltonian portion of the book covers Hamilton's canonical equations, contact transformations, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory. Also included are chapters on stability of motion, impulsive forces, and the Gibbs-Appell equation. Two types of examples are used throughout the book. The first…
