Written for advanced undergraduate courses in physics and engineering, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to classical mechanics. In addition to the traditional approach to problem solving, the book incorporates computational physics tools to enhance the reader's understanding. Topics covered include rigid body motion, moving coordinate systems, Lagrange equations, small vibrations, and the Euler algorithm.
MATLAB is used throughout the book to solve numerous real-world application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
