## Reviews and Awards

"hhe book appears to be well suited to serve the intended role of introducing physics students to mechanics and making clear to them the relevance of the subject for modern physics; but it will also be useful to mathematics students to understand that the subject is relevant and alive well beyond the classical realms of applications and/or abstract mathematical developments." - **Giuseppe Gaeta, Zentralblatt Math**

"Sarada Rajeev has produced a masterpiece which is as steeped in tradition as it is modern in outlook. The book is a minimalist's dream, unleashing on the unsuspecting reader a treasure trove of novel results within its slender frame. The informal yet stimulating narrative, the excellent choice of topics, and the lucid explanations truly make the book a connoisseur's delight." - **V. V. Sreedhar, Chennai Mathematical Institute**

"Rajeev approaches his choice of topics and organization from the point of view of one who is intimately familiar with modern physics. Although he starts from very elementary classical mechanics, he nevertheless does not shy away from sophisticated mathematical tools, such as elliptic functions, which he develops from scratch. This book should be of interest to many physics graduate students and researchers in physics, as well as to many mathematicians." - **Leonard Gross, Cornell University**
