8.223 Classical Mechanics II


Class Info

A broad, theoretical treatment of classical mechanics, useful in its own right for treating complex dynamical problems, but essential to understanding the foundations of quantum mechanics and statistical physics. Generalized coordinates, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations, canonical transformations, and Poisson brackets. Applications to continuous media. The relativistic Lagrangian and Maxwell's equations.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.223 will not be offered this semester. It will be available during IAP.

This class counts for a total of 6 credits.
