An Introduction to Lagrangian Mechanics
by

Publisher: Saint Michael's College, Colchester
Number of pages: 232

Description:
These lecture notes are meant to provide a self-consistent introduction to Classical Mechanics without the need of any additional material. They are normally used for an intermediate course in Classical Mechanics by inserting a more general and rigorous introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods suitable for undergraduate physics students at sophomore and junior levels.
