This is the fifth edition of a well-established textbook. It is intended to provide a thorough coverage of the fundamental principles and techniques of classical mechanics, an old subject that is at the base of all of physics, but in which there has also in recent years been rapid development. The book is aimed at undergraduate students of physics and applied mathematics. It emphasizes the basic principles, and aims to progress rapidly to the point of being able to handle physically and mathematically interesting problems, without getting bogged down in excessive formalism. Lagrangian methods are introduced at a relatively early stage, to get students to appreciate their use in simple contexts. Later chapters use Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods extensively, but in a way that aims to be accessible to undergraduates, while including modern developments at the appropriate level of detail. The subject has been developed considerably recently while retaining a truly central role for all students of physics and applied mathematics. This edition retains all the main features of the fourth edition, including the two chapters on geometry of dynamical systems and on order and chaos.

"Classical Mechanics by T Kibble and F Berkshire is tailor-made for budding theoreticians. It lays the groundwork for relativity and quantum theory, quickly progressing beyond Newtonian mechanics to the alternative formulations of Joseph Lagrange and William Hamilton." New Scientist "... the student who requires a good book on the older aspects of Classical Mechanics together with a brief introduction to newer ideas will find the third edition useful." Contemporary Physics "This volume, by Kibble and Berkshire, has proved to be a successful book ... the written content and presentation are all excellent." European Journal of Physics
