bookshelves: classical-mechanics

The definitive work on the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of mechanics. Be wary that you should have a working knowledge of differential geometry or a mastery of analytic geometry as it will be fully applied to physical problems. It is also very dense, but very well written. By density, one means that a typical sentence contains the information that an entire chapter in an undergraduate text would spend time expounding. It is up to the mature reader to motivate any necessary expansion of the material presented in the text.
