**An Introduction to Lagrangian Mechanics**

by

**Alain J. Brizard**-

**Saint Michael's College, Colchester**

These lecture notes provide a self-consistent introduction to Classical Mechanics. They are normally used for an intermediate course in Classical Mechanics by inserting a more general and rigorous introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods.
