This new edition of Classical Mechanics, aimed at undergraduate physics and engineering students, presents in a user-friendly style an authoritative approach to the complementary subjects of classical mechanics and relativity.

The book starts with a careful look at Newton's Laws, before applying them in one dimension to oscillations and collisions. More advanced applications, including gravitational orbits and rigid body dynamics, are discussed after the limitations of Newton's inertial frames have been highlighted through an exposition of Einstein's Special Relativity. Examples given throughout are often unusual for an elementary text, but are made accessible to the reader through discussion and diagrams.

Updates and additions for this new edition include:

-New vector notation in Chapter 1

-An enhanced discussion of equilibria in Chapter 2

-A new section on a body falling a large distance towards a gravitational source in Chapter 2

-New sections in Chapter 8 on general rotation about a fixed principal axes, simple examples of principal axes and principal moments of inertia and kinetic energy of a body rotating about a fixed axis

-New sections in Chapter 9: Foucault pendulum and free rotation of a rigid body; the latter, including the famous tennis racquet .theorem

-Enhanced chapter summaries at the end of each chapter

-Novel problems with numerical answers

Recensione:

"This book aimed at undergraduate physics and engineering students, presents in a user-friendly style an authoritative approach to the complementary subjects of classical mechanics and relativity." (Zentralblatt MATH, 2011)
 
"When McCall (Imperial College London) decided to produce a second edition of his introductory textbook, he was keen to keep it accessible to third-year undergraduates with minimal background in mathematics. So he has embellished the original material rather than expanding into more advanced areas. New discussions include a body free-falling a large distance under gravity, a demonstration that snooker balls always scatter at 90 degrees, the rotation of arbitrary bodies, and the tennis racket theorem." (Reference and Research Book News, February 2011)

L'autore:

Dr. Martin McCallis based at Imperial College London (UK) in the Photonics Group of the Physics Department. He began his research career at GEC Hirst Research Centre working on Photorefractives for real-time image processing. After completing his PhD he moved back to academia as a postdoc at the University of Bath (UK) where he worked on nonlinear dynamics in optoelectronic systems. Dr. McCall returned to Imperial College as a faculty member in Physics where he focusses mainly on complexity within linear optics, looking at how light diffracts in periodic and quasi-periodic structures. His particular specialism is using coupled wave techniques for simplifying problems that are otherwise very complicated. Aside from electromagnetics, he has interests in classical mechanics, relativity, chess and ceroc dancing. In addition to his book on Classical Mechanics: a Modern Introduction (2000), Dr. McCall has published over 75 refereed journal papers and conference presentations. He is joint holder of five patents.
