Theoretical mechanics or Newtonian mechanics uses three fundamental notions: space, time and mass. These three notions are considered independent one.

In the 17th century, Sir Isaac Newton formulated his now famous laws of mechanics. These remarkably simple laws served to describe and predict the motions of observable objects in the universe, including those of the planets of our solar system.

D'Alembert's principle. This handout, entitled Clebsch-Gordan coefficients and the tensor spherical harmonics , defines the tensor spherical harmonics as the simultaneous eigenfunctions of J2, Jz , L2 and S2 in the coordinate representation.
A useful table of Clebsch-Gordan coefficients is provided for the analysis. The Clebsch-Gordan series and its applications are treated in Appendix A, and the vector spherical harmonics are treated explicitly in Appendix B.
The expression that relates the spherical harmonics to the Wigner D-function is derived in Appendix C. In this handout, I provide a another proof the Projection Theorem that differs from the one presented in Sakurai and Napolitano.
This theorem shows that the matrix elements of any vector operator are proportional to the corresponding matrix elements of the angular momentum operator.
Moreover, a simple expression for the proportionality constant is given. The Projection Theorem is a simple consequence of the Wigner-Eckart theorem. The time reversal operator is an antiunitary operator, which involves a number of subtleties.
For a very nice treatment of the mathematics of antilinear and antiunitary operators, have a look at the following set of notes by C.
Caves, entitled Antilinear Operators. References on special functions of mathematical physics 1. A superb resource for both the elementary functions and the special functions of mathematical physics is the Handbook of Mathematical Functions by Milton Abramowitz and Irene A. Stegun, which is freely available on-line. The home page for this resource can be found here. There, you will find links to a frames interface of the book.
Another scan of the book can be found here. A third independent link to the book can be found here. The project had two equally important goals: to develop an authoritative replacement for the highly successful Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables, published in by the National Bureau of Standards M.
Abramowitz and I. Stegun, editors ; and to disseminate essentially the same information from a public Web site operated by NIST. The new Handbook and DLMF are the work of many hands: editors, associate editors, authors, validators, and numerous technical experts. The NIST Handbook covers the properties of mathematical functions, from elementary trigonometric functions to the multitude of special functions.
All of the mathematical information contained in the Handbook is also contained in the DLMF , along with additional features such as more graphics, expanded tables, and higher members of some families of formulas. One of the classic references to special functions is a three volume set entitled Higher Transcendental Functions edited by A. Erdelyi , which was compiled in and is based in part on notes left by Harry Bateman.
This was the primary reference for a generation of physicists and applied mathematicians, which is colloquially referred to as the Bateman Manuscripts. This esteemed reference work continues to be a valuable resources for students and professionals.
PDF versions of the three volumes are now available free of charge. Another very useful reference for both the elementary functions and the special functions of mathematical physics is An Atlas of Functions 2nd edition by Keith B. This resource is freely available on-line to students at the University of California at this link. Yet another excellent website for both the elementary functions and the special functions of mathematical physics is the Wolfram Functions site.
This site was created with Mathematica and is developed and maintained by Wolfram Research with partial support from the National Science Foundation. Additional mathematical information can be found on the related Wolfram MathWorld site. This textbook Classical Mechanics provides a complete survey on all aspects of classical mechanics in theoretical physics.
An enormous number of worked examples and problems show students how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems. The textbook covers Newtonian mechanics in rotating coordinate systems, mechanics of systems of point particles, vibrating systems and mechanics of rigid bodies. It thoroughly introduces and explains the Lagrange and Hamilton equations and the Hamilton-Jacobi theory. A large section on nonlinear dynamics and chaotic behavior of systems takes Classical Mechanics to newest development in physics.
The new edition is completely revised and updated. New exercises and new sections in canonical transformation and Hamiltonian theory have been added. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents. Advertisement Hide. Front Matter Pages Pages Free Fall on the Rotating Earth.
