This work describes the fundamental principles, problems, and methods of classical mechanics. The main attention is devoted to the mathematical side of the subject. The authors have endeavored to give an exposition stressing the working apparatus of classical mechanics. The book is significantly expanded compared to the previous edition. The authors have added two chapters on the variational principles and methods of classical mechanics as well as on tensor invariants of equations of dynamics. Moreover, various other sections have been revised, added or expanded. The main purpose of the book is to acquaint the reader with classical mechanics as a whole, in both its classical and its contemporary aspects. The book addresses all mathematicians, physicists and engineers. From the reviews of the previous editions: "... The book accomplishes the goals it has set for itself. While it is not an introduction to the field, it is an excellent overview. ..." American Mathematical Monthly, Nov. 1989.

From the reviews of the previous editions: "... As an encyclopaedia article, this book does not seek to serve as a textbook, nor to replace the original articles whose results it describes. The book's goal is to provide an overview, pointing out highlights and unsolved problems, and putting individual results into a coherent context. It is full of historical nuggets, many of them surprising. ... The examples are especially helpful; if a particular topic seems difficult, a later example frequently tames it. The writing is refreshingly direct, never degenerating into a vocabulary lesson for its own sake. The book accomplishes the goals it has set for itself. While it is not an introduction to the field, it is an excellent overview. ..." American Mathematical Monthly, Nov. 1989 "This is a book to curl up with in front of a fire on a cold winter's evening. ..." SIAM Reviews, Sept. 1989
From the reviews of the third edition:
"Mathematical Aspects of Classical and Celestial Mechanics is the third volume of Dynamical Systems section of Springer's Encyclopaedia of Mathematical sciences. ... if you wanted an idea of the broad scope of classical mechanics, this is a good place to visit. One advantage of the present book is that the authors are particularly skilled in balancing rigor with physical intuition. ... The authors provide an extensive bibliography and a well-selected set of recommended readings. Overall, this is a thoroughly professional offering." (William J. Satzer, MathDL, January, 2007)
"The new edition is a considerable updating of the last. ... it is a reference for experts that will pull them back from their narrow subarea of expertise, give them a vast overview of what other experts know, and send them to the references if they actually want to be able to use something. ... In conclusion, this is a book that every mathematical library must own and that many experts will want to have on their shelves." (James Murdock, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (4), 2007)
"This book is the third English edition of an already classical piece devoted to classical mechanics as a whole, in its traditional and contemporary aspects ... . The book is significantly expanded with respect to its previous editions ... enriching further its already important contribution of acquainting mathematicians, physicists and engineers with the subject. ... New chapters on variational principles and tensor invariants were added, making the book more self-contained. ... Its purpose is to serve as a detailed guide on the subject ... ." (Ernesto A. Lacomba, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 a)
