## Main textbooks

- Classical Mechanics by
- Mechanics by
- Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics by

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

- Modern Analysis by
- Mathematica by
- Digital Library of Mathematical Functions by
- Handbook of Mathematical Functions by

## Expository material

## Advanced reading

- When effective theories predict: the inevitability of Mercury's anomalous perihelion precession by [arxiv:1106.1568]
- Galilean Electromagnetism by [Nuovo Cimento, 14 (1973) 217]

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