This Classical Mechanics class is suitable either for students in transition to advanced physics classes or for students with a good physics foundation who want to study Classical Mechanics more in depth. This class provides a complete analysis of the classical mechanics of particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies. It introduces the mathematical formalism needed for the quantum theory of physics as well. Some of the included topics will be: Oscillations and Nonlinear Oscillations and Chaos, some Methods in the Calculus of Variations, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Dynamics.
