Reviews

'... in a logically clear and physically rigorous way the book highlights the landmarks of the analytical mechanics so that the attentive student can be easily prepared for the exam. It is suitable for studying in intermediate and upper-level undergraduate courses of classical mechanics ...' Vladimir I. Pulov, Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics
