I`m reading up on the three body problem, since today we covered the two body problem in Dynamics classe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem is I don`t know what a Hamiltonian is, the sence refers to a hamiltonian system with 2 degrees of freedom!

Could someone please explain what a hamiltonian/ Hamiltonian system is?

edit : I think this needs to be moved to Celestial Mechanics, sorry!
