Graduate students seeking to become familiar with advanced computational strategies in classical and quantum dynamics will find in this book both the fundamentals of a standard course and a detailed treatment of the time-dependent oscillator, Chern-Simons mechanics, the Maslov anomaly and the Berry phase, to name just a few topics. Well-chosen and detailed examples illustrate perturbation theory, canonical transformations and the action principle, and demonstrate the usage of path integrals. The sixth edition has been enlarged to include the Heisenberg-Euler Lagrangian, Schwinger's source theory treatment of the low-energy - -N physics and general relativity, where Riemann's (Einstein's) ideas on space and time and their philosophical implications are discussed.
