In answer to a need for a comprehensive work on dynamics, this volume is reissued after having been out of print for over thirty-vie years. Physicists, advanced engineers, mathematicians, and teachers will find material in this classic which has been omitted from newer, more narrowly specialized texts. It also serves as an excellent source for the background essential to studies in motion, rocketry, aerodynamics, advanced dynamics, etc. A wide range of topics is covered in unusually great depth, applying the important tools of ordinary and partial differential equations. The author has included a special section on differential equations and the higher analysis which will prove helpful to students wishing to review these subjects.
