9780387955865: Classical Mechanics: Point Particles and Relativity (Classical Theoretical Physics)

Intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, this text is based on the highly successful course given by Walter Greiner at the University of Frankfurt, Germany. The two volumes on classical mechanics provide not only a complete survey of the topic but also an enormous number of worked examples and problems to show students clearly how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems.

Review:

From the reviews:

"What makes Greiner’s volumes of particular value to the student and professor alike is their completeness ... Moreover, Greiner greatly increases the value of his presentation by including something like one hundred completely worked examples in each volume. Nothing is of greater importance to the student than seeing, in detail, how the theoretical concepts and tools under study are applied to actual problems of interest to working physicists ... Greiner’s lectures ... are internationally noted for their clarity, for their completeness, and for the effort that he has devoted to making physics an integral whole. His enthusiasm for his sciences is contagious and shines through almost every page." D. Allan Bromley, Yale University

"This softcover publication ... is based on the author’s courses at the J. W. Goethe University in Frankfurt. ... Although the textbook, by its remarkable completeness, seems to be intended for advanced students and aims to be a reference book for graduate students and teachers, it is sufficiently understandable and extensive to be used by beginners as a first introduction to theoretical physics. It does not only provide a survey of classical theoretical mechanics, but also a respectable amount of examples and problems ... ." (Georges Kohnen, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"This volume of lectures ... deals with the first and more elementary part of the important field of classical mechanics. The subject is presented in a manner that is both interesting to the student and easily accessible. The main text is therefore accompanied by many exercises and examples that have been worked out in great detail. This should make the book useful also for students wishing to study the subject on their own. ... A worthwhile purchase for graduate students in physics ... ." (Current Engineering Practice – online, Vol. 47, 2004)
