Classical Mechanics

I didn’t realise when I was doing my Physics degree the importance of Classical Mechanics to quantum mechanics that I used during my PhD. In particular the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of Newtonian Mechanics are critical to understanding high field quantum transport. The book by John R Taylor is a great place to start, moving on to Goldstein’s book for more advanced aspects.
