I'm undergraduate and I'm looking for a text about Small Oscillations in which matrices are used. Could you suggest me a book or a PDF file?

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource.

Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

I think you should try these books:

1) David Tong: Lectures on Classical Dynamics (

2) V. I. Arnold, Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics

3) L. Landau an E. Lifshitz, Mechanics

The material is standard, so you can probably learn it equally well from many sources, some of which are referenced in the link mentioned in the (edited) question.
