Most widely held works by E. T Whittaker
A course of modern analysis : an introduction to the general theory of infinite processes and of analytic functions; with an account of the principal transcendental functions by E. T Whittaker( Book )

332 editions published between 1902 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text has entered and held the field as the standard book on the applications of analysis to the transcendental functions. The authors explain the methods of modern analysis in the first part of the book and then proceed to a detailed discussion of the transcendental function, unhampered by the necessity of continually proving new theorems for special applications. In this way the authors have succeeded in being rigorous without imposing on the reader the mass of detail that so often tends to make a rigorous demonstration tedious. Researchers and students will find this book as valuable as ever
A treatise on the analytical dynamics of particles and rigid bodies, with an introduction to the problem of three bodies by E. T Whittaker( Book )

178 editions published between 1904 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic book is a encylopaedic and comprehensive account of the classical theory of analytical dynamics. The treatment is rigorous yet readable, starting from first principles with kinematics before moving to equations of motion and specific and explicit methods for solving them, with chapters devoted to particle dyanmics, rigid bodies, vibration, and dissipative systems. Hamilton's principle is introduced and then applied to dynamical systems, including three-body systems and celestial mechanics. Very many examples and exercisies are supplied throughout
