This new edition of Classical Mechanics, aimed atundergraduate physics and engineering students, presents inauser-friendly style an authoritative approach to the complementarysubjects of classical mechanics and relativity.
The text starts with a careful look at Newton's Laws, beforeapplying them in one dimension to oscillations and collisions. Moreadvanced applications - including gravitational orbits and rigidbody dynamics - are discussed after the limitations of Newton'sinertial frames have been highlighted through an exposition ofEinstein's Special Relativity. Examples given throughout are oftenunusual for an elementary text, but are made accessible to thereader through discussion and diagrams.
Updates and additions for this new edition include:
* New vector notation in Chapter 1
* An enhanced discussion of equilibria in Chapter 2
* A new section on a body falling a large distance towards agravitational source in Chapter 2
* New sections in Chapter 8 on general rotation about a fixedprincipal axes, simple examples of principal axes and principalmoments of inertia and kinetic energy of a body rotating about afixed axis
* New sections in chapter 9: Foucault pendulum and free rotationof a rigid body; the latter including the famous tennis racquettheorem
* Enhanced chapter summaries at the end of each chapter
* Novel problems with numerical answers

Dr. Martin McCallis based at Imperial College London (UK) in the Photonics Group of the Physics Department. He began his research career at GEC Hirst Research Centre working on Photorefractives for real-time image processing. After completing his PhD he moved back to academia as a postdoc at the University of Bath (UK) where he worked on nonlinear dynamics in optoelectronic systems. Dr. McCall returned to Imperial College as a faculty member in Physics where he focusses mainly on complexity within linear optics, looking at how light diffracts in periodic and quasi-periodic structures. His particular specialism is using coupled wave techniques for simplifying problems that are otherwise very complicated. Aside from electromagnetics, he has interests in classical mechanics, relativity, chess and ceroc dancing. In addition to his book on Classical Mechanics: a Modern Introduction (2000), Dr. McCall has published over 75 refereed journal papers and conference presentations. He is joint holder of five patents. - Newsletter
