Lecture notes for MATH3977 are available from KOPYSTOP for purchose from week one. It is recommended that you get a copy.

If you want a "second opinion" here are three classical books on the subject, available in the library:
  • Lev Davidovitch Landau and Evgeny Mikhailovich Lifshitz: Mechanics
  • Herbert Goldstein: Classical Mechanics
  • Vladimir Igorevich Arnold: Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics
All of them cover more than we do.

Consultation hour is 1pm on Tuesdays in my office Carslaw 714, or email me if that does not work for you.

Your class representative is Denzel Florez.
