Summary and Info
The series of texts on Classical Theoretical Physics is based on the highly successful series of courses given by Walter Greiner at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, the volumes in the series provide not only a complete survey of classical theoretical physics but also an enormous number of worked examples and problems to show students clearly how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems. Classical Mechanics II covers:- Newtonian mechanics in rotating coordinates systems- Mechanics of systems of point particles- Vibrating systems: both discrete and continuous systems (chains, membranes)- Mechanics of Rigid Bodies- Lagrange's equations- Hamilton equations, canonical transformations and Hamilton-Jacobi theory- Nonlinear Dynamics, bifurcations, Lyapunov exponents, chaotic dynamics and includes a bief overview of the history of mechanics
