I am looking to learn the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian approach to celestial mechanics - I have previous experience in Newtonian numerical solutions for orbital motion but am looking to achieve similar things but through the use of Hamiltonian formulations.

After having a poke around this site I have found a few people recommending "Classical Dynamics of particles and systems" as an introductory text to the Lagrangian and the Hamiltonian - is this a good reference for me to use, given the intended application?

Cheers!
