Saunders Mac Lane Geometrical Mechanics

“Kinetic Energy Is A Riemann Metric On Configuration Space”

Saunders taught a course on Geometrical Mechanics around 1979-80 or so while I was there.  The class was taught in the neighboring Ryerson physics building built with no ferrous metals, though not for that reason but for the metal ball he used to demonstrate spin modes.

Below are the lecture notes personally handed to me by Saunders, dating back to 1968 for the original class.  Interestingly, there’s no space in “MacLane”.  That alludes as to who typed the notes.
