•Course Purpose
After learning the Newtonian mechanics for motion of point particles, analytical method for oscillators with many degrees of freedom and solid bodies using Lagrangean is given. Variational method and canonical equation of motion are also presented.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Analysis, Linear algebra, Mechanics I and, Mechanics II

•Course Topics
1. Newtonian mechanics 2. Motion of solid bodies, Principle of virtual work 3. D'Alembert principle 4. Lagrange's equation 5. Motion of Koma, 6. Variational principles 7. Small oscillations 8. Forced oscillations and damping oscillations 9. Scattering problem 10. Hamilton's equation 11. phase space and Canonical transformation and generating functions 12. Poisson brackets


•Additional Reading
Classical Mechanics (H.GoldStein), Mechanics (Landau lecture series)

•Grade Assessment
Evaluation will be made by exercises after every lectures and final semester examination with an equal weight. Students who mark more than 60 points out of 100 points are passed.
If you are absent from the final examination, the score will be "ABSENT".
In case of less than 59 points, the students who attend to the final examination will have score "F".
