Help others by sharing your knowledge 1] Goldstein, Herbert "Classical Mechanics", 2nd ed, 1980. intermediate to advanced; excellent bibliography 2] Introductory: The Feyman Lectures, vol 1. 3] Symon, Keith  Mechanics, 3rd ed., 1971 undergrad level. 4] Corbin, H and Stehle, P  Classical Mechanics, 2nd ed., 1960 5] V.I. Arnold, Mathematical methods of classical mechanics, translated by K. Vogtmann and A. Weinstein, 2nd ed., 1989. The appendices are somewhat more advanced and cover all sorts of nifty topics. Deals with Geometrical aspects of classical mechanics 6] Resnick, R and Halliday, D  Physics, vol 1, 4th Ed., 1993 Excellent introduction without much calculus. Lots of problems and review questions. 7] Marion, J & Thornton, "Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems", 2nd ed., 1970. Undergrad level. A useful intro to classical dynamics. Not as advanced as Goldstein, but with real workedout examples. 8] Fetter, A and Walecka, J: Theoretical mechanics of particles and continua. graduate level text, a little less impressive than Goldstein (and sometimes a little less obtuse) 9] ManyParticle Physics, G. Mahan 10] Fetter & Walecka: Theoretical Mechanics of Particles and Continua.
