Is the solar system stable? Is there a unifying "economy" principle in mechanics? How can a point mass be described as a "wave"?
Series by cover
This book was written to fill a gap between elementary expositions and more advanced and clearly more stimulating material. It takes the challenge to explain the most relevant ideas and to show the most important applications using plain language and "simple" mathematics, often through an original approach. Basic calculus is enough for the reader to proceed through the book and when more is required, the new mathematical concepts are illustrated, again in plain language. The book is conceived in such a way that some difficult chapters can be bypassed, whilst still grasping the main ideas.
However, anybody wishing to go deeper in some directions will find at least the flavour of recent developments and many bibliographical references. Theory is always accompanied by examples.

Please try again later. I had Professor Fasano as lecturer in Florence.
He is absolutely clear and pedagogical. This book covers even complicated topics with basic mathematical tools.
Exercises are curious like the many examples which are in details solved in the book see in particular the chapter on dynamical systems. Definitely one of my favorite books. This book covers a a lot of material with clear definitions, important theorems, interesting examples, mathematical proofs with all details. All you would like to know on basic Classical Mechanics, A very good taste in choosing topics for the text. See all 3 reviews.
