3.5 Stars -- Good Supplementary Material 1. Small Oscillations (coupled oscillators, normal coordinates, eigenvalue problems) 2. Continuous Media (passage from loaded string to continuum limit)3. Strings/Wave Propagation (e.g. d'Alembert, Bernoulli) These are the sections I found useful.Others were not.I recommend this book as useful auxiliary material to standard texts like M&T.The level is slightly above M&T, but I found the use of matrix notation (vs. ungodly summations) very helpful.And Professor Fetter is a great teacher! - A Sophomore Physics Major
Useful only for its continuum mechanics coverage Much of the book reads as if the authors arejust piecing together the relevant sections from other texts, whileremoving the copied authors' insights.Indeed, they're caught red-handedin chapter 1.Not only are problems 1.17, 1.18 directly from Landau'stext, the wording is identical, the problems are divided into the sameparts, and just as problem 1.18 directly follows 1.17 in this text, itdirectly follows the same problem in Landau's book. This book reallydoesn't do anything in partcle mechanics well.It's examples are trivial(a common problem), and modern methods (see V.I. Arnold's book and adynamical systems text) are omitted.There's no reason to use this forparticle mechanics when Landau's beautiful text is available.And althoughI've never used it, I'd wager that Landau's continuum mechanics book isbetter than this text's coverage...
Excellent introductory Graduate text in classical mechanics Of exceptional note is the chapter entitled "Strings" which extends the treament of most of classical mechanics into the quantum regime.Thissection also gives the student an excellent first introduction to the variational and perturbation methods for finding exact and approximate solutions. ...

Editorial Review Product Description In their prior Dover book, Theoretical Mechanics of Particles and Continua, the authors provided a self-contained account of classical mechanics. This supplement and update offers a bridge to contemporary mechanics. The original book's focus on continuum mechanics forms the basis for this discussion of nonlinear continuous systems. 2006 edition. Customer Reviews (2)

Editorial Review Product Description The series of texts on Classical Theoretical Physics is based on the highly successful series of courses given by Walter Greiner at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, the volumes in the series provide not only a complete survey of classical theoretical physics but also an enormous number of worked examples and problems to show students clearly how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems. This edition contains two new chapters on generalized theory of canonical transformations and the Hamilton-Lagrange formalism, as well as new sections in the chapter on Hamiltonian theory. All chapters have been completely revised and updated and numerous new exercises have been added. Customer Reviews (2)

Editorial Review Product Description This practical guide to PIV provides in a condensed form most of the information relevant for the planning, performance and understanding of experiments employing the PIV technique. In its second edition, the authors updated the chapters on the principles and included information on microscopic, high-speed and three component measurements as well as a description of advanced evaluation techniques. Steve Wereley with his knowledge completed the group of authors of the first edition and his participation as an author was the key for that update. But also the drastic increase in the range of possible applications has been taken into account as the chapter describing representative applications of the PIV technique has been expanded considerably. The resulting book is mainly intended for engineers, scientists and students, who already have some basic knowledge of fluid mechanics and non-intrusive optical measurement techniques. For many researchers and engineers planning to utilize PIV for their special industrial or scientific applications, PIV is just an attractive tool with unique features which may help them to gain new insights in problems of fluid mechanics. These people are usually not interested in becoming specialists in this field before starting their investigations. On the other side some of the basic properties of PIV must be well understood before a correct interpretation of the results is possible. Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description This book examines the study of mechanical systems as well as its links to other sciences of nature. It presents the fundamentals behind how mechanical theories are constructed and details the solving methodology and mathematical tools used: vectors, tensors and notions of field theory. It also offers continuous and discontinuous phenomena as well as various mechanical magnitudes in a unitary form by means of the theory of distributions. |
