Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Howland ( Univ. Of Notre Dame) has prepared a mathematical treatment of mechanics/dynamics in three dimensions with an emphasis on linear-algebraic details. The book is well written, showing a real appreciation for the underlying mathematics. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (J. D. Fehribach, Choice, Vol. 43 (10), June, 2006)
