Classical Mechanics
by

Publisher: The Australian National University
Number of pages: 109

Description:
In this course we will develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by an arbitrary number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be nonetheless encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian, named after the French mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange (1736–1813), or the Hamiltonian, named after the Irish mathematician Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1805–1865).
