By Walter Thirring, E.M. Harrell

This quantity combines the enlarged and corrected variations of either volumes on classical physics of Thirring's recognized path in mathematical physics. With a variety of examples and comments accompanying the textual content, it really is appropriate as a textbook for college kids in physics, arithmetic, and utilized arithmetic.
