Title: On the geometric aspects behind classical mechanics.Abstract: In this talk about physics, we will not talk about physics, but the applications of mathematical tools used in that field. From a functional to symplectic geometry, passing by abstract algebra and using differential forms, we will explore some of the foundations of classical mechanics and apply them to the famous example of the2D harmonic oscillator. No knowledge of any physics is required.
