The following text is required, and covers the traditional CM (Classical Mechanics) material. The following text is optional. It provides a decent introduction to much of the material on chaos that we will discuss, but there are several other texts that you may already have that are comparable (see here ). Also, I do not follow this text as closely as I do Fetter and Walecka. Both texts are available at the University Bookstore. Other useful references that I am aware of are listed here .
