Peter Damerow, et al. Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics, 2nd. ed., Chap 3 (a close examination of Galileo's early Notes on Motion, cf. the online edition jointly assembled by the Max Planck Institute in Berlin and the Istituto e Museo di Storia delle Scienze in Florence). May 24,  · The OP mentioned learning classical mechanics as a prelude to later QM courses. This is a good idea. I should mention Shankar's book on quantum mechanics contains excellent preparatory review material on classical mechanics and math preliminaries . Apr 30,  · Like Moses, Galileo did not reach the promised land, or better perhaps, like Columbus, did not recognize it as such. Galileo arrived at the derivation of results such as the law of free fall and projectile motion by exploring the limits of the systems of knowledge of preclassical mechanics (p. 41).

Mar 20,  · Dear forum, I recently took an analytic mechanics course at UCLA in which the average grade on the first midterm was something like a 27 out of The teacher was a brilliant man but unfortunately could not convey the material to the students. I don't think anyone felt as though they had. Jan 18,  · The confusion regarding Descartes and quantity of motion is remarkably commonplace; see P. Damerow, G. Freudenthal, P. McLaughlin; J. Renn, Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics (Springer-Verlag, New York, ). This is a fine erudite discussion of pre-Newtonian mechanics, but their treatment of mass (which does not even appear in the Cited by: 1. As was explained in Section 2, central to the argument of Damerow et al. is the idea that Galileo’s exploration of the limits of preclassical mechanics implicitly defined the concepts of classical mechanics. This exploration was triggered and constrained by the attempt to apply the preclassical concepts to the problem of accelerated motion. Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics.

This book argues that the emergence of classical mechanics was neither a cumulative change nor an abrupt revolution, but rather that the transformation was the result of exploring the limits and exhausting the possibilities of the existing, largely Aristotelian conceptual system.

“Classical mechanics gave us a deterministic view of the world. Quantum mechanics, conversely, gives us a probabilistic view instead. According to Newton, if you know the cause af an event, you can predict the outcome.

According to soundsofgoodnews.com, you can only predict how likely that outcome will be.” ―. The author of this book is affiliated with the Center for Development and Socialization of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Ed ucation in Berlin and heads its program on culture and cognition which de votes its labors to the reconstruction of scientific concepts through history in a perspective of what might be called "historical epistemology.".

While not yet the book I’d eventually like to write, the result may already be helpful for people interested in the mathematics of classical mechanics. The chapters in this LATEX version are in the same order as the weekly lectures, but I’ve merged weeks together, and sometimes split them over chapter, to obtain a more textbook feel to.

Variational Principles In Classical Mechanics. The goal of this book is to introduce the reader to the intellectual beauty, and philosophical implications, of the fact that nature obeys variational principles that underlie the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian analytical formulations of classical mechanics.

I try to clarify some aspects of the mathematics used by Newton to solve mechanical problems. 2 It has been said that the analysis of motion elaborated in the Scientific Revolution was carried out by exploring the limits of preclassical mechanics [Damerow et al., ].

William A. Wallace seems to have a historical grasp which will have to be matched by any further workers: he sees directly into Galileo's primary epoch of intellectual formation, the sixteenth century. In this volume, Wallace provides the companion to his splendid.
