Summary

Based on a course developed by the author, Mechanics provides an introduction to classical mechanics. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the topics under discussion and is followed by precise definitions, propositions, and theorems and ends with exercises that reinforce students understanding. The treatment of the subject is mathematical, but the mathematics used is elementary. In fact, all the mathematics presented involve basic vector algebra and differential calculus of vector valued functions of a real variable. The author avoids explaining the underlying geometry in an explicit manner. Instead, he presents geometric discussions in a kinematical disguise - a treatment beneficial not only to the mathematics student but also to students of physics and engineering.
