The following are described as forming classical mechanics:
Newtonian mechanics, the original theory of motion (kinematics) and forces (dynamics).
Analytical mechanics is a reformulation of Newtonian mechanics with an emphasis on system energy, rather than on forces. There are two main branches of analytical mechanics:
Hamiltonian mechanics, a theoretical formalism, based on the principle of conservation of energy.
Lagrangian mechanics, another theoretical formalism, based on the principle of the least action.
Classical statistical mechanics generalizes ordinary classical mechanics to consider systems in an unknown state; often used to derive thermodynamic properties.
Celestial mechanics, the motion of bodies in space: planets, comets, stars, galaxies, etc.
Astrodynamics, spacecraft navigation, etc.
Solid mechanics, elasticity, the properties of deformable bodies.
Acoustics, sound ( = density variation propagation) in solids, fluids and gases.
Statics, semi-rigid bodies in mechanical equilibrium
Fluid mechanics, the motion of fluids
Soil mechanics, mechanical behavior of soils
Continuum mechanics, mechanics of continua (both solid and fluid)
Hydraulics, mechanical properties of liquids
Fluid statics, liquids in equilibrium
Applied mechanics, or Engineering mechanics
Biomechanics, solids, fluids, etc. in biology
Biophysics, physical processes in living organisms
Relativistic or Einsteinian mechanics, universal gravitation.
In January 2010 it was reported by Variety that Mann, alongside David Milch, would serve as co-executive producer of new TV series Luck. The series was an hour-long HBO production, and Mann directed the series' pilot. Although initially renewed for a second season after the airing of the pilot, it was eventually cancelled due to the death of three horses during production.
On February 14, 2013, it was announced that Mann had been developing an untitled thriller film with screenwriter Morgan Davis Foehl for over a year, for Legendary Pictures. In May 2013, Mann started filming the thriller, named Blackhat, in Los Angeles, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Jakarta. The film, starring Chris Hemsworth as a hacker who gets released from prison to pursue a cyberterrorist across the globe, was released on January 16, 2015 by Universal. It was a critical and commercial disaster, although many critics included it in their year-end "best-of" lists.
In January 2015, it was reported in The New Yorker that Mann is developing a film about Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari. Christian Bale was originally cast to play the title character, but later dropped out citing health concerns over the weight gain required to play the role. Financing is coming from Vendian Entertainment in the US and China's Bliss Media. Distribution rights have already been purchased by Paramount for the US and Bliss Media for China.
