Description

A text for advanced students and practitioners in mechanics, scientific computing, physics, and mathematical modeling. Provides a systematic and unified treatment of mechanics and dynamical systems, addressing modeling, qualitative analysis, and simulations of physical systems using ordinary differential equations. Mathematica is used to present the scientific computational components in worked examples and end-of-chapter problems.
