Description

This book is an introductory text on mechanics with a number of solved examples. Since vectors are used to discuss principles of mechanics, a detailed study of vector Algebra and calculus is presented in the beginning. Advanced topics like calculus of variation and topics from differential geometry about curves and surfaces are also discussed.
