Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with Newton's laws and with basic physics concepts such as mass, moments of inertia, length, force and time. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.

We will study some famous and amusing problems. We will recast Newton's mechanics in languages (Lagrangian and Hamiltonian) which are not only practical for many problems but allow the methods of mechanics to be extended into every corner of physics.
