Mechanics has been at the heart of theoretical physics, ever since Ernst Mach's seminal work on the subject
Presents a thoroughly up-to-date treatment of the fundamentals behind how mechanical theories are constructed
The author has spent a lifetime studying this subject and brings together all of his experience and thought on the mechanics of particles into this volume
Comprehensive with references to over 600 books
