Classical dynamics is traditionally treated as an early stage in the development of physics, a stage that has long been superseded by more ambitious theories. Here, in this book, classical dynamics is treated as a subject on its own as well as a research frontier. Incorporating insights gained over the past several decades, the essential principles of classical dynamics are presented, while demonstrating that a number of key results originally considered only in the context of quantum theory and particle physics, have their foundations in classical dynamics. Graduate students in physics and practicing physicists will welcome the present approach to classical dynamics that encompasses systems of particles, free and interacting fields, and coupled systems. Lie groups and Lie algebras are incorporated at a basic level and are used in describing space-time symmetry groups. There is an extensive discussion on constrained systems, Dirac brackets and their geometrical interpretation. The Lie-algebraic description of dynamical systems is discussed in detail, and Poisson brackets are developed as a realization of Lie brackets. Other topics include treatments of classical spin, elementary relativistic systems in the classical context, irreducible realizations of the Galileo and Poincaré groups, and hydrodynamics as a Galilean field theory. Students will also find that this approach that deals with problems of manifest covariance, the no-interaction theorem in Hamiltonian mechanics and the structure of action-at-a-distance theories provides all the essential preparatory groundwork for a passage to quantum field theory. This reprinting of the original text published in 1974 is a testimony to the vitality of the contents that has remained relevant over nearly half a century.

Classical Mechanics presents an updated treatment of the dynamics of particles and particle systems suitable for students preparing for advanced study of physics and closely related fields, such as astronomy and the applied engineering sciences. Compared to older books on this subject, the mathematical treatment has been updated for the study of more advanced topics in quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and nonlinear and orbital mechanics. The text begins with a review of the principles of classical Newtonian dynamics of particles and particle systems and proceeds to show how these principles are modified and extended by developments in the field. The text ends with the unification of space and time given by the Special Theory of Relativity. In addition, Hamiltonian dynamics and the concept of phase space are introduced early on. This allows integration of the concepts of chaos and other nonlinear effects into the main flow of the text. The role of symmetries and the underlying geometric structure of space-time is a key theme. In the latter chapters, the connection between classical and quantum mechanics is examined in some detail.

Der Goldstein geh?rt zu den Standardwerken f?r die Vorlesung in Klassischer Mechanik, die Pflichtvorlesung und Teil des Theorie-Lehrplans jedes Physik-Studienganges ist. Der von Beginn an hohe mathematische Anspruch der theoretischen Physik, der gerade in der ersten Vorlesung viele ?berraschend trifft, l?sst zwei Gruppen von Studierenden entstehen: jenen, die mathematisch und theoretisch begabt sind, sich evtl. sp?ter zur theoretischen Physik hin orientieren und mit der Vorlesung wenig Probleme haben; und jenen, die zwar z.B. experimentell begabt sind, indes Schwierigkeiten haben, den abstrakten Formalismus auf die Physik etwa des Praktikums zu ?bertragen. Erstere Gruppe nutzt f?r die theoretische Physik Lehrb?cher, die hohes Niveau voraussetzen und mathematisch streng die Formeln herleiten; letztere Gruppe ben?tigt Werke, welche die Formeln ausf?hrlicher erkl?ren und mit vielen Beispielen illustrieren. In der ersteren Gruppe haben sich Klassiker wie "Jackson: Classical Electrodynamics" etabliert, die seit Jahrzehnten sowohl von Studenten gelobt als auch von Dozenten empfohlen werden. Der "Goldstein" geh?rt in diese Kategorie. F?r diese aktuelle Ausgabe haben Charles Poole und John Safko die Texte ?berarbeitet und neueste Themen, Anwendungen und Notationen eingearbeitet, womit sie den Anforderungen an einen modernen Lehrstoff auf diesem Gebiet gerecht werden. Neu aufgenommene numerische ?bungen bef?higen die Studenten, Physikprobleme computergest?tzt zu l?sen. Mathematische Techniken werden detailliert eingef?hrt, so da? der Text auch f?r Studenten ohne den entsprechenden Hintergrund der Theoretischen Mechanik verst?ndlich ist. Bis zu 40 ?bungsaufgaben am Ende jedes Kapitels!

Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems presents a modern and reasonably complete account of the classical mechanics of particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies for physics students at the advanced undergraduate level. The book aims to present a modern treatment of classical mechanical systems in such a way that the transition to the quantum theory of physics can be made with the least possible difficulty; to acquaint the student with new mathematical techniques and provide sufficient practice in solving problems; and to impart to the student some degree of sophistication in handling both the formalism of the theory and the operational technique of problem solving. Vector methods are developed in the first two chapters and are used throughout the book. Other chapters cover the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics, the special theory of relativity, gravitational attraction and potentials, oscillatory motion, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics, central-force motion, two-particle collisions, and the wave equation.
