Advanced Mechanics (PHYS 321 / ENPH 321)

Course Information:

Instructor: Prof. Lake
Next Session: Winter 2017

Prerequisites: PHYS 212, MATH 221 or MATH 227 or MATH 280 and MATH 225 or MATH 231 or MATH 232

Description:

An introduction to the equations of mechanics using the Lagrange formalism and to the calculus of variations leading to Hamilton’s principle. The concepts developed in this course are applied to problems ranging from purely theoretical constructs to practical applications. Links to quantum mechanics and extensions to continuous systems are developed.
