Analytical Mechanics for Relativity and Quantum Mechanics
Second Edition
Oliver Johns
Oxford Graduate Texts
 Solutions manual available on request from the OUP website
 Modern graduate text on analytical mechanics
 Treats time as a transformable coordinate integrating special relativity with other, more traditional topics
 Introduces notations and methods directly transferrable to quantum mechanics
 Highlights the interface between classical and quantum mechanics
 Pedagogic style, including many exercises, while maintaining mathematical precision for deeper understanding
New to this Edition:
 Part I contains new chapters on Central Force Motion (Chapter 11) and ScatteringTheory (Chapter 12) and has added introductory material on timeindependent canonical transformations to the chapter Introduction to Hamiltonian Mechanics (Chapter 4).
 These additions allow a more flexible use of the text. Part I becomes a selfcontained introductory Analytical Mechanics course. The instructor can then choose specific topics from the advanced material in Part II to suit the needs of particular student groups. After the short preparatory Chapters 13, 14, and 15 of Part II, the course can take either a relativity track with Chapters 16, 17, and 18, or an advanced classical and quantum track with Chapters 19, 20, and 21.
