Honors Course
This is an advanced undergraduate course in analytical mechanics with tensors and fluids. It will build on material mastered in previous core courses (e.g., PHYS 3010 - Intermediate Mechanics with Relativity). The course will go deeper into collisions, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics, motion in non-inertial reference frames, oscillations, rotations of rigid bodies, and fluid dynamics. Should time allow, nonlinear mechanics, chaos, and continuum mechanics may be introduced as well.
