Resources for analytical mehanics

  1. May 29, 2014 #1
    As the spring semester is over and the summer is now beginning I was thinking that I would like to get a start on analytical mechanics on my own as a summer project. I was wondering if anyone knows an online lecture series on analytical mechanics, preferably with an assigned textbook and homeworks. At the very least can someone recommend a textbook that is well suited for self teaching.

    If it is any help, I have taken and am familliar with physics 1 and 2, special relativity, "modern physics" (which is essentially rudimentry quantum mechanics) all of the standard calculus material, differential equations, linear algebra, and some modern algebra.

    thank you

    Have you tried checking MIT's open course ware? I find those guys usually have some good courses, especially for lower level classes.

    I checked there but did not see any course on analytical mechanics
