The relativistic dynamics, fluid dynamics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos may be considered as time permits. The course will include two lectures per week accompanied by a recitation.Course InfoSyllabus: syllabus.pdfMain TextbookS. Thornton and J. Marion, Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems (5th Edition)Other Useful ReferencesMany other texts exist on classical mechanics at the introductory (undergraduate) level, some can be found in the library, and can also be very useful in this course. Students are encouraged to explore those. Examples are:
