Description1 online resource : illustrations
Abstract NoteThis book begins with the ancient parts of classical mechanics: the variational principle, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms, and Poisson brackets. Hamilton-Jacobi theory is discussed, showing a path towards quantum mechanics and a connection to the eikonal of optics. The three body problem is studied in detail, including small orbits around the Lagrange points. Chaos on the complex plane is also covered: Julia sets, Fatou sets and the Mandelblot
