Classical Mechanics, 2011

Reading List: Classical Mechanics, 2011

Main textbooks

Please make it a point to read the relevant sections of all three books soon after a lecture, and before the next lecture. The three books have quite distinct emphasis: Goldstein's is a classic textbook, Landau's book is highly conceptual, and Arnold's has a mathematical flavour.

Reference books

Expository material

Advanced reading

We will work through at least one of these papers in class. Anyone who is interested is welcome to work through more.
