Classical Mechanics

Anirvan Sengupta


The textbook is "Classical Mechanics", 3rd ed., by Goldstein, Poole and Safko, Addison Wesley.


The evaluation will depend upon several homework assignments, a mid-term and a final exam. The exams would be open book/notes and even with internet access. You just have to work by yourself. If you do badly while solving problems in time-bound exams, I would encourage you to come to me during office hours or otherwise, and try to solve problems on the blackboard.
