PHY321: Classical Mechanics 1 - GitHub Pages.
Rather than presenting Analytical Mechanics mainly as a formal development of Newtonian Mechanics, it highlights its effectiveness due to the following five important achievements: 1) the most economical description of time evolution in terms of the minimal set of coordinates, so that there are no constraint forces in their evolution equations; 2) the form invariance of the evolution equations.

Analytical Mechanics is the investigation of motion with the rigorous tools of mathematics, with remarkable applications to many branches of physics (Astronomy, Statistical and Quantum Mechanics, etc.). Rooted in the works of Lagrange, Euler, and Poincare, it is a classical subject with fascinating developments and still rich with open problems.

If you finish the proposed problems early, you can work on your homework. Assigments: 5 sets biweekly sets, with best 4 grades counting towards the final mark. The problem sets will be given to you in class; they and the corresponding due dates are also available on-line here. The homework must be turned in on due date in class.
A Review of Analytical Mechanics 1.1 Introduction These lecture notes cover the third course in Classical Mechanics, taught at MIT since the Fall of 2012 by Professor Stewart to advanced undergraduates (course 8.09) as well as to graduate students (course 8.309).
This advanced undergraduate textbook begins with the Lagrangian formulation of Analytical Mechanics and then passes directly to the Hamiltonian formulation and the canonical equations, with constraints incorporated through Lagrange multipliers. Hamilton's Principle and the canonical equations remain the basis of the remainder of the text.
