Elements of Theoretical Mechanics
by Alexander Ziwet
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1904
Number of pages: 517
The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a safe and sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its more simple applications.

The purpose is to develop an accurate physical, conceptual, geometric, and pictorial understanding of important mechanics topics, from basic principles through Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, including rotation, oscillations, and more.

The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body. Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation are also included.

From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
