This course will present Newtonian kinematics and dynamics, with emphasis on one- and two-particle systems of continued importance in physics and astrophysics. Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods, rigid-body dynamics, and nonlinear mechanics are among the topics that will be discussed. The cross-listed course, PHYS513, is similar to PHYS313 with supplementary material and special assignments and is open only to graduate students.
