  Classical mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, classical mechanics or Newtonian mechanics is one of the two major sub-fields of study in the science of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of bodies and aggregates of bodies.
While the terms classical mechanics and Newtonian mechanics are usually considered equivalent, the conventional content of classical mechanics was created in the 19th century and differs considerably (particularly in its use of analytical mathematics) from the work of Newton.
Classical mechanics is used to describe the motion of macroscopic objects, from projectiles to parts of machinery, as well as astronomical objects, such as spacecraft, planets, stars, and galaxies, and even microscopic objects such as large molecules.

 Fluid dynamics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fluid dynamics is the subdiscipline of fluid mechanics that studies fluids (liquids and gases) in motion.
The foundational axioms of fluid dynamics are the conservation laws, specifically, conservation of mass, conservation of momentum (also known as Newton's first law), and conservation of energy.
Another often used model, especially in computational fluid dynamics, is to use the Euler equations far from the body and the boundary layer equations, which incorporate viscosity, close to the body.

 Celestial mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Celestial mechanics is a division of astronomy dealing with the motions and gravitational effects of celestial objects.
Isaac Newton is credited with introducing the idea that the motion of objects in the heavens, such as planets, the Sun, and the Moon, and the motion of objects on the ground, like cannon balls and falling apples, could be described by the same set of physical laws.
Using Lagrangian mechanics it is possible to develop a single polar coordinate equation that can be used to describe any orbit, even those that are parabolic and hyperbolic.

 Category:Classical mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Classical mechanics is the physics of forces acting upon bodies.
It is often called "Newtonian mechanics" after Newton and his laws of motion.
The topic is subdivided into statics (objects at rest) and dynamics (objects in motion).

In physics, dynamics is the branch of mechanics that is concerned with the effects of forces on the motion of objects.
Category: Classical mechanics A variational principle is a principle in physics which is expressed in terms of the calculus of variations.
Fluid mechanics is often considered a branch of continuum mechanics, because fluids are often treated as continuous material, describable with differential equations and tensors.

 On Classical Mechanics
In this work a new dynamics is developed, which is valid for all observers, and which establishes, among other things, the existence of a new universal force of interaction, called kinetic force, which balances the remaining forces acting on a body.
It is known that in classical mechanics Newton's dynamics cannot be formulated for all reference frames, since it does not conserve its form when passing from one reference frame to another.
Classical mechanics solves this difficulty by separating reference frames into two classes: inertial reference frames, for which Newton's dynamics applies, and non-inertial reference frames, where Newton's dynamics does not apply; but this solution contradicts the principle of general relativity, which states: the laws of physics shall be valid for all reference frames.

 Fields Institute - Marsden Workshop on Geometry, Dynamics and Mechanics
He has done extensive research in the area of geometric mechanics, with applications to rigid body systems, fluid mechanics, elasticity theory, plasma physics, as well as to general field theory.
He is one of the original founders in the early 1970's of reduction theory for mechanical systems with symmetry, which remains an active and much studied area of research today.
In 1965 he graduated from the University of Toronto in Applied Mathematics, got his PhD in Princeton under the guidance of Arthur Wightman and Ralph Abraham in 1968 and joined the faculty at UC Berkeley later that year, where he later became Professor of Mathematics and EECS until his departure for Caltech in 1995.
