The exposition is simple and leads to the most complete direct means of solving problems in mechanics.The final sections on adiabatic invariants have been revised and augmented. In addition a short biography of L D Landau has been inserted.
For final year undergraduates, postgraduates, and research workers in theoretical physics and physics.
