This book takes the student from the Newtonian mechanics typically taught in the first and the second year to the areas of recent research. The discussions of topics such as invariance, Hamiltonian-Jacobi theory, and action-angle variables is especially complete; the last includes a discussion of the Hannay angle, not found in other texts.
