Preface This book, organised into ten chapters, is written tocover the syllabus of classical mechanicsforthestudentsof physicsatthegraduateand postgraduatelevel.I hopethattheclear,lucidandcomprehensivecoverageof thisbookwillhelp students togaina thorough grounding of thesubject. Thebeginningpartof thisbookexplainsseveralchaptersonthebasisof Newtonianmechanicsandthenthetextexplainsthegeneralisedco-ordinates andLagrangian mechanicsalong with Hamiltonian mechanicsbasically forthe holonomicsystem.Theconcludingchapterdealswiththecanonical transformations by which thesolution tothe particular problem can be obtained trivially.Someproblemshavebeenworkedouttoaidinunderstandingthe underlying theory attheend of eachchapter. Finally,theexpressionsof acknowledgements.Iamindebtedtomy colleagues,studentswhohavekindlygivenmevaluablecommentsand suggestions.Iacknowledgewithadeepsenseof gratitudemyindebtednessto theauthorswhosestandardworksinthefieldIhavefreelyconsultedtomy benefit.
