## Description

About the series: “The **Wiley Classics Library** consists of selected books that have become recognized classics in their respective fields. With these new unabridged and inexpensive editions, Wiley hopes to extend the life of these important works by making them available to future generations of mathematicians and scientists.”

From the Preface: “Because this book is intended for classroom use as well as for a reference to researchers, it is nearly self-contained. Most of the first four chapters, which treat systems having a single degree of freedom, are concerned with introducing basic concepts and analytic methods, although some of the results in Chapter 4 related to multiharmonic excitations cannot be found elsewhere. In the remaining four chapters the concepts and methods are extended to systems having multidegrees of freedom.

“This book emphasizes the physical aspects of the systems and consequently serves as a companion to *Perturbation Methods* by A. H. Nayfeh. Here many examples are worked out completely, in many cases the results are graphed, and the explanations are couched in physical terms.

“An extensive bibliography is included. We attempted to reference every paper which appeared in an archive journal and related to the material in the book. However omissions are bound to occur, but none is intentional. Many exercises have been included at the end of each chapter except the first. These exercises progress in complexity, and many of them contain intermediate steps to help the reader. In fact, many of them would expand the state of the art if numerical results were computed. Some of these exercises provide further reference.”

#### Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

$49.95

"Classical mechanics is a chief example of the scientific method organizing a 'complex' collection of information into theoretically rigorous, unifying principles; in this sense, mechanics represents one of the highest forms of mathematical modeling. This textbook covers standard topics of a mechanics course, namely, the mechanics of rigid bodies, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, stability and small oscillations, an introduction to celestial mechanics, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory, but at the same time features unique examples—such as the spinning top including friction and gyroscopic compass—seldom appearing in this context. In addition, variational principles like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics are treated in great detail." — From the back cover
