4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 1, 2004
Format: Hardcover
With all the to-do about Quantum Mechanics, one might suspect that Classical Mechanics is a dead field, with all the interesting problems solved.
Not quite! Classical Mechanics has a storied past, dating back to Lagrange and Newton. Mathematically, the book gives you the important historical papers. But, just as importantly, the editors have furnished recent papers that give you an idea of the cutting edge, circa 1987, when this book was assembled.
There are discussions about chaotic behaviour in various dynamical ensembles, and about the onset to chaos. Very much a new thing in the 1980s. And, indeed, with still much to be explored.
The papers also hail from a variety of fields. Particle accelerators, plasma, solid state, chemistry and fluid mechanics. Gives you a good feel for the current diversity of ways to apply your research.
