Classical Mechanics And Special Relativity
course gives a review to the basic principles and introduction to advanced
methods of mechanics, emphasizing the relationship between dynamical symmetries
and conserved quantities, as well as classical mechanics as a background to
course is also designed to help the student acquire an understanding of the
formalism and concepts of relativity as well as its application to physical
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
the end of the course, the students should be able to:
mechanics with forces and torques to solve problems in Cartesian and
problems using work-energy, and conservation of energy, momentum and angular
Solve and analyze
problems in non-inertial frames.
mechanics to obtain the equations of motion for a variety of problems,
including the use of generalized coordinates and cyclic coordinates.
and similar techniques to linearize equations of motion to analyze stability
and study coupled systems using normal modes.
Lorentz transformation equation.
Carry out advanced course in mechanics.
