This book is mathematically very formal and very clear; I loved it when I took analytical mechanics because it avoids the phycisists' smudges of rigour and presents one clear, coherent structure. Classical Mechanics is a textbook about that subject written by Herbert Goldstein, a professor at Columbia ed for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, it has been one of the standard references in its subject around the Author: Herbert Goldstein.

Classical mechanics describes the motion of macroscopic objects, from projectiles to parts of machinery, and astronomical objects, such as spacecraft, planets, stars and galaxies.. If the present state of an object is known it is possible to predict by the laws of classical mechanics how it will move in the future (determinism) and how it has moved in the past (reversibility).

He was hailed for his part in the unfolding scientific revolution by laying the foundations of classical mechanics in his book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (or simply Principia. The translation of this important book brings to the English-speaking mathematician and mathematical physicist a thoroughly up-to-date introduction to statistical mechanics. It offers a precise and mathematically rigorous formulation of the problems of statistical mechanics, as opposed to the non-rigorous discussion presented in most other works.
