Learning outcomes

The class is devoted to a modern study of classical mechanics from a mathematical point of view. The aim of the class is to introduce the tools and techniques of global and numerical analysis, differential geometry and dynamical systems to formalise a model of classical mechanics. At the end of the class a student should be able to construct a model of physical phenomena of mechanical type, write the equations of motion in Lagrangian and Hamiltonian form and analyse the dynamical aspects of the problem.

Program

• Introduction. At the beginning of the course we will quickly review some basic aspects of dynamical systems using the modern tools of differential geometry and global analysis. Vector fields on a manifolds, flow and conjugation of vector fields. First integrals, foliation of the phase space and reduction of order for a ODE. 1-dimensional mechanical systems.

• Newtonian mechanics. The structure of the Galilean space-time and the axioms of mechanics. Systems of particles: cardinal equations. Conservative force fields. Mass particle in a central field force and the problem of two bodies.

• Variational principles. Introduction to the calculus of variations: Hamilton’s principle and the equivalence between Newton and Lagrangian equations for conservative systems. Legendre transformation and Hamilton equations.

• Lagrangian mechanics on manifolds. Constrained systems: d’Alembert principle and Lagrange equations. Models of constraints and their equivalence. Invariance of Lagrange equations for change of coordinates. Jacobi integral. Noether’s Theorem, conserved quantities and Routh’s reduction.

• Hamiltonian mechanics. Hamilton equations, Poisson brackets. Noether’s Theorem from the Hamiltonian point of view.

• Rigid bodies. Orthonormal basis, orthogonal and skew-symmetric matrices. Space and body frame: angular velocities. Cardinal equations in different reference frames. A model for rigid bodies. Euler’s equations.

Some qualitative numerical aspects will also been investigated. The course will also include seminars in geometric mechanics, geometric control theory and applications to robotics and surgical robotics.

Examination Methods

To success in the exam, students must show that:
- they know and understand the fundamental concepts of Newtonian, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics;
- they have abilities in solving problems in mechanics, both from the abstract and the computational point of view
- they support their argumentation with mathematical rigor.

The exam is divided in two part: a written test based on the solution of open-form problems and an oral
test in which the student is required to discuss the written test and to answer some questions proposed
in open form. Only students who have passed the written exam will be admitted to the oral examination.
If positive, the mark obtained in the written test will be valid until the last session of the present
academic year (February 2020).

A student must obtain a mark of at least 18/30 (best) in both the written and oral part to pass the exam,
and the final grade will be given by the arithmetic average of the marks of the written and of the oral part.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!


Alternative learning activities

In order to make the study path more flexible, it is possible to request the substitution of some modules with others of the same course of study in Mathematics at the University of Verona (if the educational objectives of the modules to be substituted have already been achieved in the previous career), or with others of the course of study in Mathematics at the University of Trento.
