Theoretical classical mechanics

Cursus

Omschrijving

This course will introduce the concepts of space & time, and Einstein's special theory of relativity. We will learn how symmetry properties can simplify solving the equations of motion of point masses. We will become acquainted with the concept of phase space, which is the basis of statistical mechanics. We will intensively study the powerful and elegant frameworks of Lagrangian & Hamiltonian mechanics.
