Structure and interpretation of classical mechanics

Author: Gerald Sussman; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Educational Services.
Publisher: [Cambridge, Mass.] : MIT Center for Advanced Education Services, [2001]
Series: MIT-EECS colloquium series.
Edition/Format:   VHS video : VHS tape   Visual material : English
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Gerald Sussman discusses classical mechanics from an unusual perspective. He focuses on understanding motion rather than deriving its equations. He uses a functional mathematical notation that allows precise understanding of fundamental properties of classical mechanics. He uses computation to constrain notation, to capture and formalize methods, for simulation, and for symbolic analysis.
