Classical Lagrangian Mechanics

    What books include the theory of lagrangian mechanics? And where can i also find some problems?Could lagrangian mechanics help me in solving problems with oscillations?

    Mathematical Method of Classical Mechanics by VI Arnold

    Classical Mechanics: Hamiltonian and Lagrangian Formalism by Alexei Deriglazov (I haven't read this book)

    David Morin's problem book on classical mechanics.

    Depends highly on the problem.

    A short introduction is Landau&Lifshitz vol. 1. It doesn't even bother you with "naive mechanics" but uses right away the much simpler approach through the action principle!
