Cool Book I found

  1. Jul 26, 2007 #1
    Ok so I found this cool book entitled: Principle of Mechanics by SYNGE & GRIFFITH,McGraw-Hill, 1959. It looks really mathematically rigourous. It covers Space Mechanics, Plane Mech, etc. My question is, what course would this stuff be taught in? It has Halmiltonian mechanics as well as Lagranian so an Intermediate mechanics course? Thanks

    Marion and Thorton was used to teach my Theoretical Mechanics course, and it included Hamiltonian and Lagrangian stuff, orbital mechanics, etc... so I'd say, yes, it'd be use to teach an upper level undergraduate mechanics course.
