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.

Tom Kibble is Senior Research Fellow and Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Imperial College London, and a Fellow of the Royal Society. He has published many articles on theoretical particle physics and cosmology. Frank Bershire is also at Imperial College London. He is Senior Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Mathematics, and has published on dynamical systems, waves and fluids. He was elected as Imperial College Teaching Fellow in 1996. Both authors have long experience of lecturing to physics and applied mathematics students.Review:
"This volume, by Kibble and Berkshire, has proved to be a successful book ... the written content and presentation are all excellent."
..." the student who requires a good book on the older aspects of Classical Mechanics together with a brief introduction to newer ideas will find the third edition useful."
"Classical mechanics by T Kibble and F Berkshire is tailor-made for budding theoreticians. It lays the groundwork for relativity and quantum theory, quickly progressing beyond Newtonian mechanics to the alternative formulations of Joseph Lagrange and William Hamilton."
