Description Classical mechanics is
the abstraction and generalisation of Newton's laws of motion undertaken,
historically, by Lagrange and Hamilton. This note will introduce the two
main approaches to classical mechanics: 1. the variational formulation 2.
the phase space formulation (Hamilton's equations, Poisson brackets,
canonical transformations, actionangle variables).
