(1) Lezioni di meccanica razionale (2) New Methods in Exterior Ballistics


    (1) THE monumental treatise which Profs. T Levi-Civith and Amaldi are engaged in writing on rational mechanics (to use the comprehensive title established on the Continent) is divided into three volumes, which deal respectively with kinematics and statics, dynamics of systems possessing a finite number of degrees of freedom, and dynamics of continuous systems. The second volume is divided into two parts, to the second of which are reserved the general questions properly belonging to rigid dynamics and the subjects of canonical equations of motion and the principle of Hamilton and Jacobi.
