Analytical Mechanics for Relativity and Quantum Mechanics
15 Mar 2016
Oxford University Press
An innovative and mathematically sound treatment of the foundations of analytical mechanics and the relation of classical mechanics to relativity and quantum theory. It treats time as a transformable coordinate, and so moves the teaching of classical mechanics out of the nineteenth century and into the modern relativistic era. It also presents classical mechanics in a way designed to assist the student's transition to quantum theory.
