If Coopersmith’s “The Lazy Universe” left you with a lot of unanswered questions as it did me Priinciples book which is frequently mentioned by Coopersmith should answer them. All the things that are handwaved-over in the former are nailed down here, with a fine attention to detail, while still never losing sight of the big picture.
corneliuss May 25, globulon rated it really liked it Shelves: The really great thing about this book is that while it is a full on textbook of the subject, it discusses the history and philosophy of the subject as well as presenting the mathematical formalism, something very uncommon. I used to have this Dover edition, now I have an older one that I like less.
The Dover edition covers some aspects of relativity and its relationship to this formulation of mechanics that aren’t included in the older one. Oct 19, 5dd rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The finest text on classical mechanics I’ve ever read. Lanczos offers some of the most intuitively appealing explanations ever written on this wonderful subject and simultaneously manages to preserve its inherent mathematical elegance and beauty.
