Summary:
"This book is an introduction to the subject of classical mechanics. Though the treatment is mathematical, the mathematics used is elementary. The book avoids explaining the underlying geometry in an explicit manner.

Abstract:

"This book is an introduction to the subject of classical mechanics. Though the treatment is mathematical, the mathematics used is elementary. The book avoids explaining the underlying geometry in an explicit manner. Instead, all the geometric discussion appears in a kinematical disguise in the belief that such a treatment is beneficial not only to the mathematics students but also to the students of physics and engineering." "Each chapter that begins with an introduction to the concepts involved in the topic of the chapter is followed by precise definitions, propositions and the theorems covering its theme. The results are further elucidated by illustrative examples and solved problems. Exercises are given at the end of each chapter."--Jacket.
