Now includes two new chapters on the qualitative geometrical features of dynamical systems, and on the distinction between regular and chaotic motion. The book assumes some prior acquaintance with the elementary concepts, but begins with a review of these first principles. Needed results on vectors are summarized in an appendix. Those features of classical mechanics, which are of importance in other branches of physics, particularly the conservation laws and symmetries, are highlighted.
