COURSE: 17-300 Mechanics (4)
Following an introduction to vector analysis this course develops the Newtonian, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of mechanics. The power of each of these formulation is examined through their application to the solution of a broad range of problems in particle and rigid body dynamics and oscillation theory. Prerequisite: 17-240 and 13-300 taken concurrently. Offered: Spring, RMVL.
