Newtonian Dynamics

A complete set of lecture notes for an upper-division undergraduate Newtonian dynamics course. The course concentrates on those aspects of classical dynamics which can be studied analytically. Topics covered include oscillations, Keplerian orbits, two-body scattering, rotating frames of reference, rotation of rigid bodies in three dimensions, Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics, and coupled oscillations.

The lecture notes are availible in various formats:
[HTML]
A fully hyperlinked HTML document.
[PDF]
A PDF file with embedded Type 1 fonts.
[BOOK]
A professionally-bound print-on-demand book.
