Topics in Nonlinear Dynamics

Course Description

This graduate level course focuses on nonlinear dynamics with applications. It takes an intuitive approach with emphasis on geometric thinking, computational and analytical methods and makes extensive use of demonstration software. we will focus on geometric intuition and examples, rather than on rigorous proofs and abstract algebra. Also, the concepts will be illustrated by application to science and engineering. The theory will be developed systematically.

Course Objective

This is a basic course in classical mechanics at the senior undergraduate/ master's level. It covers the standard topics in this subject, including the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms. It also places the subject in the broader context of classical dynamical systems.
