Problem set No. 1, a review of Lagrangian Classical Mechanics, is due on Wednesday September 20, 2017, at 5:00 pm CDT. This problem set covers material on classical mechanics that you should know from your undergraduate courses and that we will go over quickly in the first three lectures.
We will not have a lecture on Monday September 25.
Due to a family emergency I will be out of town and we will miss the first few lectures, that will made up soon. Our first lecture will be on Monday September 11.
