Book Description
This open access textbook takes the reader stepbystep through the concepts of mechanics in a clear and detailed manner. Mechanics is considered to be the core of physics, where a deep understanding of the concepts is essential in understanding all branches of physics.
Many proofs and examples are included to help the reader grasp the fundamentals fully, paving the way to deal with more advanced topics. After solving all of the examples, the reader will have gained a solid foundation in mechanics and the skills to apply the concepts in a variety of situations.
The book is useful for undergraduate students majoring in physics and other science and engineering disciplines. It can also be used as a reference for more advanced levels.
About the Authors Salma Alrasheed received her bachelor’s degree in physics form King Saud University. She later obtained her master’s degree in physics from Michigan State University, after which she completed a postgraduate certificate in nanotechnology from the University of Oxford. She later completed her PhD degree in materials science and engineering from King Abdullah University for Science and Technology in 2017.

Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics
This innovative textbook concentrates on developing general methods for studying the behavior of classical systems. It focuses on the phenomenon of motion and makes extensive use of computer simulation in its explorations of the topic.

Variational Principles in Classical Mechanics (Douglas Cline)
This book introduces variational principles and their application to classical mechanics. The relative merits of the intuitive Newtonian vectorial formulation, and the more powerful variational formulations are compared.

The Key to Newton's Dynamics (J. Bruce Brackenridge)
This book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion, sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective, showing the works of both Descartes and Galileo.

Statistical Mechanics of Lattice Systems: Mathematical Introduction
This motivating textbook gives a friendly, rigorous introduction to fundamental concepts in equilibrium statistical mechanics, covering a selection of specific models, including the Curie–Weiss and Ising models, the Gaussian free field, etc.

Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Albert Einstein)
The great physicist himself disclaimed this exclusionary view, and in this book, he explains both theories in their simplest and most intelligible form for the layman not versed in the mathematical foundations of theoretical physics.

An Advanced Course in General Relativity (Eric Poisson)
Focusing on conceptual clarity, he derives all the basic results in the simplest way, taking care to explain the physical, philosophical and mathematical ideas at the heart of "the most beautiful of all scientific theories".

Quantum Computing Since Democritus (Scott Aaronson)
This book takes readers on a tour through some of the deepest ideas of maths, computer science and physics. Full of insights, arguments and philosophical perspectives, the book covers an amazing array of topics.
