ASTRO 6516

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

A knowledge of classical dynamics is essential for understanding some of the most interesting problems in astrophysics, from planetary systems to galaxies. This course will introduce and review theories of dynamical systems (e.g. Hamiltonian mechanics and nonlinear dynamics). The major focus will be on the dynamics of planetary systems (both Solar system and exoplanetary systems) and galactic dynamics. There are no astronomy or advanced mechanics prerequisites.
