Originally published in 1926, this informative and detailed textbook is primarily aimed at university students studying applied mathematics for a science or engineering degree and contains a large number of useful examples to work though. Basic knowledge of elementary dynamics is assumed throughout, as is a working knowledge of differential and integral calculus. Answers can be found at the back of the book, as well as a summary of the methods of solution of the equations contained. Examples are mostly collected from a variety of past university and college examination papers, and notably rigid dynamics has been confined to two-dimensional motion and omissions have been made to all reference of moving axes. Covering the topic in its entirety, this book gives a panoramic overview of the subject and will be of considerable value to anyone with a keen interest in mathematics and engineering, as well as the history of education.
