Newtonian

Newtonian refers to the work of Isaac Newton, in particular:

  • Newtonian mechanics, also known as classical mechanics
  • Newtonian telescope, a type of reflecting telescope
  • Newtonian cosmology
  • Newtonian dynamics
  • Newtonianism, the philosophical principle of applying Newton's methods in a variety of fields
  • Newtonian fluid, a fluid that flows like water—its shear stress is linearly proportional to the velocity gradient in the direction perpendicular to the plane of shear
    • Non-Newtonian fluids, in which the viscosity changes with the applied shear force
