A complete set of lecture notes for an upper-division classical dynamics course. The course concentrates on those aspects of classical dynamics which can be studied analytically. Topics covered include oscillations, Keplerian orbits, two-body scattering, rotating frames of reference, rotation of rigid bodies in three dimensions, Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics, and coupled oscillations.
