Welcome to Classical Physics

The course is roughly divided into three parts:

  • Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Formalism of Classical Mechanics
  • Elements of classical statistical mechanics
  • Elements of special relativity

This is to provide a background to other courses in the physics minor stream,
namely quantum mechanics for engineers and two electives. Although, taken by itself it
ought to be fun too.

A pdf file ph350.pdf with slightly more details of the course contents and the
texts and references.

The classroom is HSB 210. The slot is G as in Grrrr…
This means we meet on Wednesdays at 3:00 PM, Thursdays at 11:00 AM and Fridays at 10:00 AM.
