THE VARIATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF MECHANICS LANCZOS PDF

By Cornelius Lanczos. Analytical mechanics is, of course, a topic of perennial interest and usefulness in physics and engineering, a discipline that boasts not only many practical applications, but much inherent mathematical beauty. Unlike many standard textbooks on advanced mechanics, however, this present text eschews a primarily technical and formalistic treatment in favor of a fundamental, historical, philosophical approach. As the author remarks, there is a tremendous treasure of philosophical meaning" behind the great theories of Euler and Lagrange, Hamilton, Jacobi, and other mathematical thinkers.

If Coopersmith's "The Lazy Universe" left you with a lot of unanswered questions as it did me Lanczos's book which is frequently mentioned by Coopersmith should answer them.

All the things that are handwaved-over in the former are nailed down here, with a fine attention to detail, while still never losing sight of the big picture.

May 25, globulon rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-own , science. The really great thing about this book is that while it is a full on textbook of the subject, it discusses the history and philosophy of the subject as well as presenting the mathematical formalism, something very uncommon. I used to have this Dover edition, now I have an older one that I like less. The Dover edition covers some aspects of relativity and its relationship to this formulation of mechanics that aren't included in the older one.

Oct 19, 5dd rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Mathematicians, Scientists, Engineers. Shelves: textbooks. The finest text on classical mechanics I've ever read. Lanczos offers some of the most intuitively appealing explanations ever written on this wonderful subject and simultaneously manages to preserve its inherent mathematical elegance and beauty.

This, in addition to the fact that Dover Press is offering the text at an extremely low price, makes the book a "must have" for anyone even remotely interested in the subject of dynamics.

The Variational Principles of Mechanics

Analytical mechanics is, of course, a topic of perennial interest and usefulness in physics and engineering, a discipline that boasts not only many practical applications, but much inherent mathematical beauty. Unlike many standard textbooks on advanced mechanics, however, this present text eschews a primarily technical and formalistic treatment in favor of a fundamental, historical, philosophical approach. As the author remarks, there is a tremendous treasure of philosophical meaning" behind the great theories of Euler and Lagrange, Hamilton, Jacobi, and other mathematical thinkers. Well-written, authoritative, and scholarly, this classic treatise begins with an introduction to the variational principles of mechanics including the procedures of Euler, Lagrange, and Hamilton. Ideal for a two-semester graduate course, the book includes a variety of problems, carefully chosen to familiarize the student with new concepts and to illuminate the general principles involved. Moreover, it offers excellent grounding for the student of mathematics, engineering, or physics who does not intend to specialize in mechanics, but wants a thorough grasp of the underlying principles.
