About the Authors
  • Sir Horace Lamb (1849–1934) published numerous papers and books in his lifetime, making important contributions to applied mathematics. This second edition of Higher Mechanics was first published in 1929, providing revisions and additions to the 1920 publication. Though originally intended to be an elementary introduction to three-dimensional kinematics, statics and dynamics, this book is a classic example of Lamb's work and will also be of interest to those wishing to explore the history of mathematical theory.
