Introduction to Mechanics and Symmetry
by Jerrold E. Marsden, Tudor S. Ratiu
Publisher: Springer 1998
Number of pages: 549
This volume contains much of the basic theory of mechanics and should prove to be a useful foundation for further, as well as more specialized topics. As the name of the book implies, a consistent theme running through the book is that of symmetry.

This book summarizes the advances of Continuum Mechanics in several defined areas, with an emphasis on the application aspect: energy materials and systems, materials removal, and mechanical response/deformation of structural components.
Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.

These notes cover classical mechanics and special relativity. You will learn new techniques that will allow you to attack a wider set of problems than you saw in the introductory sequences as well as provide you a deeper understanding of physics.

We develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by a number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian or the Hamiltonian.
