This question is in the spirit of Norton's dome, an example of an apparently non-deterministic system in Newtonian mechanics. Under certain restrictions, the Picard–Lindelöf theorem guarantees the ...
I often hear that in the continuum limit we can study large numbers of particles as fields. I always imagined that by removing all bounds on the number of particles (while keeping total energy, ...
Is there any classical model which deals with the birth, life and death of particles? What application could it have? I am talking about a 'billiard-ball' kind of model, but the kind in which balls ...
I am looking for an expression for the velocity of a micron sized (1 - 10 micron diameter) sized particles under accelerating forces. I have aerosols in mind. This is what I have in mind The ...
How to solve a free particle on a 2-sphere using symplectic manifold formalism of classical mechanics ? Is there a way to get coriolis effect directly, without going into Newton mechanics? And is ...
