A modern vector oriented treatment of classical dynamics and its application to engineering problems.
A textbook for a one-semester course in a mechanical engineering curriculum, introducing the fundamentals of dynamical systems using examples applicable to engineering, and characterizing the kinematical features of systems more carefully than is typically done in classical physics. Developed from a course at the Georgia Institute of Technology, which was also popular among students of computer science and acoustics. Revised more for clarification than expansion; the date of the first edition is not noted. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
