Assignment for Class 4, October 14, 2013

We’ll start, of course, by finishing anything left over from the third class.

We’ll try to cover

  1. Interlude 3, Partial Differentiation, which includes extrema,
  2. Lecture 4, Systems of More Than One Particle, which includes momentum and phase space, and
  3. Lecture 5, Energy.

If time allows we’ll begin Lecture 6 from the book, where formal classical mechanics really starts.¬† If we do begin this, I’ll keep it self-contained so you needn’t read ahead (unless you’re so inclined).¬† You should consider reading¬† Lecture 6 in the book and viewing Susskind’s Lecture 3 before our fifth class, on October 21, 2013.
