Welcome to 4001.

I look forward to discussing Classical (a.k.a Analytical) Mechanics this semester.

Please go over the syllabus posted on the appropriate tab.

There WILL be discussion sessions on Tuesday September 5. Please bring your laptop to the discussion session with Matlab already installed. Please consult the 'Computing' posting for more information.

All CSE students should have access to downloading Matlab. Consult this web page.

If you are registered in another College, e.g. CLA, you first need to open a CSE computer lab account.
