Physics: Classical Branches of Physics

Mechanics

Mechanics includes statics, kinematics and the dynamics of rigid bodies; mechanics of fluids (partially including hydrodynamics and aerodynamics); statistical mechanics (statistical thermodynamics); and research on non-linear mechanics and chaotic systems.

Electrodynamics

Electrodynamics is mainly concerned with electric and magnetic phenomena and their interactions, and with the nature, generation, propagation and absorption of electromagnetic waves (e.g., light, radio waves, etc.).

Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics first arose as an account of empirically discovered constraints on the interconversion of mechanical work and heat, but soon developed into the general science of the transformations of one form of energy into another and of the principles ruling energy’s dissipation. The first law of thermodynamics (conservation of energy) and the second law (irreversible dissipation) count among the deepest and most general laws of nature.
