First Meeting: 9 Aug 2023

Course Description: The course will be based almost entirely on the book "Modern classical physics" by Roger D. Blandford and Kip S. Thorne. The focus will be on explaining the basics of elasticity theory and fluid dynamics, and  their applications to understanding  various physical phenomena, both from everyday life and from the laboratory. 

References: Chapters 11-15,18 of "Modern classical physics" available in
Chapter 11: Elastostatics , Chapter 12: Elastodynamics, Chapter 13: Foundations of Fluid Dynamics,  Chapter 14: Vorticity, Chapter 15: Turbulence, Chapter 18: Convection

Course Evaluation: Assignments: 50%, Two exams: 50%

Perquisites: Basic courses in classical mechanics and statistical physics

Credit Score: 4
