This book guides undergraduate students in the use of Maximaa€”a computer algebra systema€”in solving problems in classical mechanics. It functions well as a supplement to a typical classical mechanics textbook. When it comes to problems that are too difficult to solve by hand, computer algebra systems that can perform symbolic mathematical manipulations are a valuable tool. Maxima is particularly attractive in that it is open-source, multiple-platform software that students can download and install free of charge. Lessons learned and capabilities developed using Maxima are easily transferred to other, proprietary software.1.1 Introduction to Maxima Classical mechanics is the branch of physics that deals with the motion of objects subject to ... since the seventeenth century have consisted of new mathematical techniques for solving classical mechanics problems.
