The culminating achievements in this classical discipline are presented: the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of the equations of motion, action principles and the Hamilton-Jacobi equation. Applications to constrained systems, many-body systems, continuous systems and classical fields are included. Perturbation theory and general relativity are discussed briefly.
