Classical Mechanics & Special Relativity

Classical Mechanics: Newton's laws & Galilei Transformation; Conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum; central forces & Keppler's laws; two-particle & many particle problems; solid bodies; non-inertial systems & apparent forces; collisions.
Special Relativity: Einstein's axioms; Lorentz Transformation; length contraction & time dilatation; Minkowski space; Relativistic kinematic & dynamics; four vectors, mass-energy equivalence.
