"Variation Principles in Classical Mechanics", D. Cline. Available in pdf format.
The following books are excellent resources and references for classical mechanics, but they will not be on reserve in the POA in Fall 2020.
Mechanics", H. Goldstein (Addison-Wesley). This
is the gold standard for graduate texts in this field. This superbly
written book is too advanced for this course, but may be of use as an advanced
and Hamiltonian Mechanics", M.G.
Calkin (World Scientific). A more condensed book at a slightly more
advanced level than recommended for this course.
to Classical Mechanics", Atam
P. Arya (Prentice Hall). A text at the appropriate level for this
Mechanics", Grant R. Fowles (Saunders). Not
as advanced as required but may be useful as a reference.

It may be necessary to refer to several textbooks to
clarify concepts discussed in class and to study additional examples.
textbookson this reading list are on reserve in the Physics and Astronomy Library.
