  1. Mechanics of Particles and Systems - Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
    A short article designed to provide an introduction to mechanics of particles and systems, which studies dynamics of sets of particles or solid bodies, including rotating and vibrating bodies, using variational principles (energy-minimization) as well as differential equations. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus. more>>
