Physics 235, Fall 2004
It may be necessary to refer to several textbooks to
clarify concepts discussed in class and to study additional examples. The
following textbooks are on reserve in the Physics and Astronomy Library.
Mechanics", H. Goldstein (Addison-Wesley). This
is the gold standard for graduate texts in this field. This superbly
written book is too advanced for this course, but may be of use as an advanced
and Hamiltonian Mechanics", M.G.
Calkin (World Scientific). A more condensed book at a slightly more
advanced level than recommended for this course.
to Classical Mechanics", Atam
P. Arya (Prentice Hall). A text at the appropriate level for this
Mechanics", Grant R. Fowles (Saunders). Not
as advanced as required but may be useful as a reference.
