Item description for Elements of Newtonian Mechanics: Including Nonlinear Dynamics (Advanced Texts in Physics) by Jens M. Knudsen & Poul G. Hjorth...

This textbook provides a thorough introduction to Newtonian Mechanics and is intended for university students in physics, astronomy and engineering. It is based on a course for which Dr. Knudsen earned an award for the best teaching at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. More than 100 problems with solutions and 89 worked examples help the student to grasp the essential aspects of the subject, and to develop proficiency in using the powerful methods of Newtonian mechanics. Moreover, the fundamental problem of motion and the concept of inertial frames is faced from the very beginning, and runs through the entire development of classical mechanics. This new and fresh approach is presented in its third edition, which has been revised and enlarged.

Reviews - What do customers think about Elements of Newtonian Mechanics: Including Nonlinear Dynamics (Advanced Texts in Physics)?

Based On An Award-Winning Course In Mechanics  Jul 1, 2002
This is the best book on introductory Newtonian mechanics that I've read. The examples aren't shown just for "plug-and-chug" purposes as in many others; the authors use them to further develop an idea. As such, each example is important, and there are several. Each exercise is also useful in a way that many undergraduate mechanics exercises aren't. The authors also in their prose express a passion for the subject--always appreciated, and sometimes humorous. [My favorite example is on page 359 of the paperback version. Near the top of the page, following a discussion of Newton's law of universal gravitation: "The greatest achievement in the history of man was completed."]
Outstanding. The best book on Newtonian mechanics available.  Dec 13, 1998
I own dozens of books on the subject and this is by far my favorite. It is clearly written with a fine selection of problems. An excellent supplement to this book is THE VARIATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF MECHANICS by Lanczos. I highly recommend these two books for a firm understanding of classical mechanics.
