Summary

 

Geometric Mechanics - MATH96039

Role

Lecturer

Geometric Mechanics - MATH97175

Aims

This module on geometric mechanics starts with Fermat’s principle, that light rays follow geodesics determined
from a least action variational principle. It then treats subsequent developments in mechanics by Newton, Euler,
Lagrange, Hamilton, Lie, Poincaré, Noether, and Cartan, who all dealt with geometric optics.
