All phenomena in nature are characterized by motion. Mechanics deals with the objective laws of mechanical motion of bodies, the simplest form of motion. In the study of a science of nature, mathematics plays an important role. Mechanics is the first science of nature which has been expressed in terms of mathematics, by considering various mathematical models, associated to phenomena of the surrounding nature. Thus, its development was influenced by the use of a strong mathematical tool. As it was already seen in the first two volumes of the present book, its guideline is precisely the mathematical model of mechanics. The classical models which we refer to are in fact models based on the Newtonian model of mechanics, that is on its five principles, i.e.: the inertia, the forces action, the action and reaction, the independence of the forces action and the initial conditions principle, respectively. Other models, e.g., the model of attraction forces between the particles of a discrete mechanical system, are part of the considered Newtonian model. Kepler's laws brilliantly verify this model in case of velocities much smaller then the light velocity in vacuum.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The present one deals with analytical mechanics. ... The presentation of material is carefully thought out and combines the exactness, completeness and simplicity that helps in understanding of the material. A particular impression makes the rich bibliography and the completeness of author's scope. This book is one of the best modern courses on analytical mechanics ... . Undoubtedly, this course will be useful for scientists, engineers, teachers and students." (Alexander Mikhailovich Kovalev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1177, 2010)
