This landmark reference source is a comprehensive guide to fundamental knowledge about the science of the actions of forces on material bodies - and the most comprehensive exposition available of the advanced engineering-oriented dynamics. In this carefully integrated and organized introduction to advanced analytical mechanics, Papastavridis brings together a wealth of knowledge, with special emphasis on basic principles and equations of motion as they apply to the most general constrained mechanical systems with a finite number of degrees of freedom. Covering concepts, principles, theories, and applications, the book also includes a large number of complete solved examples, problems (many with answers), and an extensive bibliography. Comprehensive, clearly organized, Analytical Mechanics is a valuable resource for students, their teachers, and researchers in physics and applied mathematics, and in industrial, aerospace, civil, mechanical, and other areas of engineering. Pre-publication reviews: "Unique in contents and perspective...has no competition in depth and breadth." George Simitses, Professor of Aerospace Engineering, University of Cincinnati, USA "Probably the best of its kind and likely to become standard reference." Alex Dalgarno, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, USA
