This Course is based on the M.Sc Physics syllabus of St. Albert’s College (Autonomous) and M.G. University.

Syllabus :  LECTURE#2_About the course_PPH1CRT0219

Objective of the course:

After completing the course, the students will

(i) understand  the fundamental concepts of the Lagrangian and the Hamiltonian methods and  will be able to apply them to various problems;

(ii) understand the physics of small oscillations and the concepts of canonical transformations and Poisson brackets ;

(iii) understand the basic ideas of central forces and rigid body dynamics;

(iv) understand the Hamilton-Jacobi method and the concept of action-angle variables. This course aims to give a brief introduction to the Lagrangian formulation of relativistic mechanics.
