The book contains the exercises from the classical mechanics text Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Mechanics, together with their

complete solutions. It is intended primarily for instructors who are using Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Mechanics in their course,

but it may also be used, together with that text, by those who are studying mechanics on their own.

* Newton's Laws
* The Principle of Virtual Work and D'Alembert's Principle
* Lagrange's Equations
* The Principle of Stationary Action or Hamilton's Principle
* Invariance Transformations and Constants of the Motion
* Hamilton's Equations
* Canonical Transformations
* Hamilton-Jacobi Theory
* Action-Angle Variables
* Non-Integrable Systems
