Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a second year physics student. We are going to use "hand and finch analytical mechanics", however the reviews I saw about this book are bad.

I've already taken calculus for mathematicians, linear algebra, classical mechanics, special relativity, and electromagnetism.

The topics it covers are:

Lagrangian Mechanics

Variational calculus and its application to mechanics

Linear Oscillations

One dimensional systems: Central forces and the kepler problem

Neother's theorem and Hamiltonian dynamics

Theoretical mechanics: From canonical transformations to angle-action variables

Rotating coordinates Systems

The dynamics of rigid bodies

And more.

Could you recommend the best book or study method you know?

Thanks
