    Help with buying book

    Hi,

    I want to buy the "official" version of Mathematica Principia. But a few versions I'm looking at appear a bit mediocre and low-level. The version I'm looking for would be equivalent to Euclid's Elements but Newtonian Mechanics.

    Hey PilgrimsPath.

    If you want Newtons original work you should be able to download it for free if you look hard enough [something like Google Books could suffice].

    Of course, it would help to search for "Principia Mathematica" rather than "Mathematica Principia"!

    Oops!

    Yes of course Principia Mathematica! Sorry about that lol.

    Anyway I think I was a bit vague in my question. The version I seek has been amended by a French female physicist, but I can't quite remember her name.
