## Main Question or Discussion Point

Which one would you recommend for me?

Topics I'd like to have covered (most important ones):

-Euler-Lagrange's equations

-Lagrange's and Hamilton's approach to mechanics

-Noether's theorem

-KAM theorem

-Bertrand's theorem

-Poisson's brackets

Plenty of examples and exercises would be great too.

Now I have Arnold's 'Mathematical methods of classical mechanics', Kibble's 'Classical mechanics', I'm going to buy Landau's and Lifschitz's 'Mechanics'.

First one is obviously overcomplicated for an undergraduate, nevertheless nice to read. Kibble seems to concentrate on Newton's approach mostly, although I like the chapters I've read. Landau seems to be nice too, though it seems to be quite short.

Anything else you could recommend?
