مکانیک ِ آنالسی mekânik-e ânâlasi
*Fr.: mécanique analytique*
A branch of → *mechanics* based on
→ *variational principle*
that describes systems by their → *Lagrangian* or
→ *Hamiltonian*. Analytical mechanics provides a
formalism that is different from that of Newton and does not use the concept of force.
Among other things, analytical mechanics gives a more simple description of
continuous and constrained systems. Moreover, its mathematical structure
allows it an easier transition to quantum mechanical topics. → *analytical*; → *mechanics*. |
