TEACHING MATERIALS  AULAWEB 
The course aims at study at a deeper level a few fundamental aspects of classical physics, with particular attention to its limit of validity due to the relativistic and quantum nature of fundamental laws.
The selected topics cover all fundamental aspects of classical physics, from mechanics of selfgravitating systems to electrodynamics, classical radiation, classical optics with elements of quantum optics. A few important items related to statistical and kinetic physics, classical fluid dynamics, relativistic fluid dynamics, and stochastic systems are also included.
The course aims at deepening the knowledge of important topics of classical physics, including mechanics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics and statistical physics.
