Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The students obtain basic knowledge and skills in Classical Mechanics.

Content: Newtonian Mechanics, Variational Calculus, Hamilton’s principle, Langrange formulation, Noether theorem, Galilei transformations, two-body problem, oscillations, Legendre transform, Hamilton formulation, Poisson brackets, canonical transformations, introduction to special relativity, Lorentz transformations.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam.
One handwritten cheat sheet (A4) is allowed, no further material is permitted.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least 50% of the total points must be obtained for a positive evaluation.
Grades for x % points:
5: x < 50%
4: 50<= x < 62,5%
3: 62,5% <= x < 75%
2: 75% =< x < 87,5%
1: 87,5% <= x <= 100%
