Analytical Mechanics References

  1. Sep 12, 2006 #1

    I am looking for books which discuss Mechanics at the same level as "Analytical Mechanics" by Fowles & Cassiday. If you know of any can you please help.

    Thank you.

    Marion and Thornton is one, and Symon is another, which was what I used as an undergraduate, mainly because Symon was a U. of Wis. prof.

    I second the recommendation of Symon, which, while pitched at about the same level, is more detailed than Fowles. Though I'm judging from an ancient 2nd edition of Symon, and a 3rd edition of Fowles. Both were really helpful reviewing for graduate mechanics.
