Field Theory: Electromagnetism and Gravitation by Francis
The author uses a unique approach which emphasizes the field theoretic
aspects of gravitation and the strong analogies between gravitation
and the other areas that are studied in physics. The theory-centered
text begins with the simplest experimental facts then proceeds to the
corresponding differential equations, theoretical constructs such as
energy, momentum and stress and several applications.
Classical Mechanics by Herbert Goldstein
This is the traditional standard text for graduate or advanced undergraduate
mechanics, including Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, Newtonian
gravitation, angular momentum, and special relativistic dynamics.
Classical Dynamics : A Contemporary Approach by Jorge V. Jose, Eugene
Recent advances in the study of dynamical systems have revolutionized
the way that classical mechanics is taught and understood. Classical
Dynamics: A Contemporary Approach is a new and comprehensive textbook
that provides a complete description of this fundamental branch of physics.
The book features an early introduction of geometric (differential manifold)
ideas, as well as detailed treatment of topics in nonlinear dynamics
(such as the KAM theorem) and continuum dynamics (including solitons).
Electrodynamics by John David Jackson
A textbook for a two-semester beginning graduate course for students
who have completed a standard undergraduate program for physics majors.
Emphasizes the unity of electric and magnetic phenomena both in their
physical basis and the mode of their mathematical description, and develops
and utilizes a number of tools in mathematical physics.
Course of Theoretical Physics : Mechanics by L. D. Landau, E. M. Lifshitz
Lev Landau was the legendary figure in Soviet physics after whom the
famous Landau Institute in Moscow was named. The Landau/Lifshitz series
of texts in physics are valuable additions to the bookshelves of anyone
who wants to learn theoretical physics. This volume begins with classical
mechanics including variational principles and the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism.
The Classical Theory of Fields by L. D. Landau,
E. M. Lifshitz
This volume of the Landau/Lifshitz series in theoretical physics delivers
classical field theory, including electrodynamics, Newtonian gravity
and special and general relativity.
Fluid Mechanics by L. D. Landau
This volume of the Landau/Lifshitz series in theoretical physics treats
the dynamics of liquids and gases, including those that are turbulent,
supersonic and/or relativistic. Not up to date on the most recent results
in the field, but an essential learning tool for those entering the
