Overview

With the direct, accessible, and pragmatic approach of Fowles and Cassiday's ANALYTICAL MECHANICS, Seventh Edition, thoroughly revised for clarity and concision, students will grasp challenging concepts in introductory mechanics. A complete exposition of the fundamentals of classical mechanics, this proven and enduring introductory text is a standard for the undergraduate Mechanics course. Numerical worked examples increased students' problem-solving skills, while textual discussions aid in student understanding of theoretical material through the use of specific cases.

"One of the strengths of this text has always been its figures and presentation of the mathematical concepts. The figures are excellent and will help students to gain a feel for the ideas The major strength of this text has always been its thorough presentation of the mathematics. Many texts leave out so many steps in the examples and derivations that students, especially those seeing the applications of differential equations for the first time, find it hard to follow and become discouraged. Incorporating the presentation of new mathematical concepts into the text rather than as supplements helps students to recognize the usefulness of the math. If I were to describe this text I would consider it a good physical overview to dynamics with good supportive explanations of the mathematics involved."
