Two Body Harmonic Oscillator

  1. Apr 13, 2005 #1
    Hi friends

    I would be grateful if someone could point me to a mathematical treatise (on the internet) about the two body simple harmonic oscillator (classical mechanics only, but no Lagrangian/Hamiltonian...just energy, momentum, Newton's Laws).

    I am googling right now but all I find is mostly quantum mechanical treatments.

    Thanks and cheers
    Vivek

    Are you talking about something that is essentially two masses on the ends of a spring ?

    Robphy, thanks very much for the links and the search tip. The second link was quite useful. Do you know anyplace where I can find energy discussions for the system?
