Aims
By the end of the course, the student can: 
Describe and analyze (constrained) motion of classical particles on a quite abstract level: translation, rotation, oscillatory motion and how to use this analysis in practical situations.
Content
We will study the motion of macroscopic particles and bodies using a new formulation of classical mechanics which is equivalent to Newtonian mechanics but offers several advantages when treating for instance constraints or different types of coordinate systems. We will derive Euler, Lagrange, and Hamilton formalisms and revisit the behavior of particles in a central force field, coupled oscillations and normal mode analysis, as well as the dynamics of rigid bodies.
