In this book we describe the evolution of Classical Mechanics from Newton's laws via Lagrange's and Hamilton's theories with strong emphasis on integrability versus chaotic behavior.In the second edition of the book we have added historical remarks and references to historical sources important in the evolution of classical mechanics.
