From Euler's Determinism to Arnold's Chaos
This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on mechanics, or for self-study. There are problems that range from exercises that verify parts of the text, moderately difficult calculations, all the way up to suggested research projects. Connections to other disciplines of mathematics and physics are emphasized: quantum mechanics, optics, relativity, Riemannian geometry, metric geometry. Although this is not a book about computational physics, the ideasFrom Euler's Determinism to Arnold's Chaos
