Classical Mechanics by Tom W.B. Kibble and Frank H. BerkshireTom W.B.
Kibble and Frank H. BerkshireOnline  NA Pages  EnglishThis book is designed for students with
some previous acquaintance with the elementary concepts of mechanics, but
the book starts from first principles, and little detailed knowledge is
assumed. An essential prerequisite is a reasonable familiarity with
differential and integral calculus, including partial differentiation.

 Classical Mechanics and ElectrodynamicsJon
Magne Leinaas, University of OsloPDF  206 Pages  EnglishThis book consists of three parts, where
Part I gives an introduction to Analytical Mechanics in the form of Lagrange
and Hamilton theory. In Part II the subject is Special Relativity, where fourvector notation for vectors and
tensors are introduced and applied to relativistic kinematics and dynamics.
Finally in Part III electrodynamics is discussed from the point of view of
solutions of Maxwell’s equations, with special focus on relativistic
transformations and the radiation phenomenon.
