This develops classical mechanics using the method of D'Alembert (Calculus of variations applied to the premise that any object moves in such a manner as to maximize or minimize some function of its motion.) In order to dig this, the reader must be comfy with elementary calculus. From this, both conservation of energy and momentum can be derived, along with much of the rest of Newton's science. A must read for any physics student unfamiliar with this topic that has an aspiration to do theoretical work
