Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bring Classical Mechanics To Life With a Realistic Software Simulation! You can enhance the thorough coverage of Chow's Classical Mechanics with a hands-on, real-world experience! John Wiley & Sons, Inc. is proud to announce a new computer simulation for classical mechanics. Developed by the Consortium for Upper-Level Physics Software (CUPS), this simulation offers complex, often realistic calculations of models of various physical systems. Classical Mechanics Simulations (54881-2) is the perfect complement to Chow's text. Like all of the CUPS simulations, it is remarkably easy to use, yet sophisticated enough for explorations of new ideas. Other Important Features Include:

* Six powerful simulations include: The Motion Generator, Rotation of Three-Dimensional Objects, Coupled Oscillators, Anharmonic Oscillators, Gravitational Orbits, and Collisions

* Pascal source code for all programs is supplied and a number of exercises suggest specific ways the programs can be modified.

* Simulations usually include graphical (often animated) displays.

The entire CUPS simulation series consists of nine book/software simulations which comprise most of the undergraduate physics major's curriculum.

Book News Annotation:

A text that presents a reasonably complete account of the classical mechanics of particles and systems for physics students at the advanced undergraduate level. It departs from the conventional approach in introducing the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of mechanics at an early stage. Each chapter contains a set of homework problems of varying degrees of difficulty. Assumes a calculus-based general physics course and a course in calculus (including the handling of differentiations of field functions).
