## PHY 711 Classical Mechanics and Mathematical Methods

## General Information

This course is a one semester survey of Classical Mechanics and
Mathematical Methods at
the graduate level, using the textbook: **Theoretical Mechanics of
Particles and Continua **by Alexander L. Fetter and John Dirk Walecka
(McGraw-Hill, 1980)
(now published by
Dover ) --
**F&W**.

It is likely that your grade for the course will depend
upon the following factors:

^{*In general, there will a new assignment after each lecture,
so that for optimal learning, it would be best to complete each assignment
before the the next scheduled lecture. According to the honor system, all work
submitted for grading purposes should represent the student's own best
efforts.
Students should be confident that there is a contingency plan in place for
continuing this class in the unlikely event of a major emergency. This
plan includes the distribution of course materials by the web or by mail
and the appropriate rescheduling of exams.
