The classical mechanics notes are great, but organized a little differently than this course.L. Landau & E. Lifshitz, Mechanics - a classic, like all of the Landau & Lifshitz textsV.I.

You are encouraged to work and study with your classmates, but your homework must reflect your own work.
Course objectives: Classical mechanics is a broad subject, and we will select topics that develop techniques for analyzing nontrivial classical systems, and topics that are essential for understanding other branches of physics. You are expected to master the major topics covered in the course and be able to solve relevant problems. The course syllabus is available here. Topics will include:Basic principles: The subtleties in Newton's lawsD'Alembert's principle, Lagrangians, and Lagrange's equations of motionVariational methods and Hamilton's principleSystems with constraintsSymmetries and conservation laws:Noether's theoremHamiltonians and Hamilton's equations of motionCentral forcesSmall oscillations and normal modesRigid body motion and non-inertial reference framesCanonical transformations; Hamilton-Jacobi theory; action-angle variablesSpecial relativity
I'm happy to provide some settings. They are basically merely adjustments of the default settings and may be nothing. However, I wrote the VSTi plugin for *nix and use Cakewalk by BandLab on a daily basis to handle audio editing. At low-i.. d2c66b5586
