I have (probably) a fundamental problem understanding something related critical points and Lagrange multipliers. As we know, if a function assumes an extreme value in an interior point of some open set, then the gradient of the function is 0.

One word: “Goldstein!” Edit: As opposed to other answers, I wouldn't recommend Landau-Lifshitz for a beginner. However, “classical” it may be, it is outdated (just like Feynman lectures)!

The development of critical point theory in the twentieth century. CRITICAL POINT THEORY FOR LAGRANGIAN SYSTEMS {ERRATA CORRIGE MARCO MAZZUCCHELLI The last part of the proof of Lemma (page 33) contains a silly mistake: the set E c P K is clearly not a direct sum of eigenspaces of K, it is rather a cone.

The paragraph \Notice that E c P. In particular, striking results were obtained in the classical problem of periodic solutions of Hamiltonian systems. This book provides a systematic presentation of the most basic tools of critical point theory: minimization, convex functions and Fenchel transform, dual least action principle, Ekeland variational principle, minimax methods.

Lagrangian embeddings and critical point theory. Author links We derive a lower bound for the number of intersection points of an exact Lagrangian embedding of a compact manifold into its cotangent bundle with the zero section.

To do this the intersection problem is converted into the problem of finding solutions of a Hamiltonian system. Abbondandolo, Morse Theory for Hamiltonian Systems, Chapman and Hall/CRC Research Notes in MathematicsChapman and Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, Google Scholar [2] A.

Ambrosetti and V. Coti Zelati, Periodic Solutions of Singular Lagrangian Systems, Progr. Nonlinear Differential Equations Appl. 10, Birkh ser Boston, Inc., Boston, MA, In mathematics, a Lagrangian system is a pair (Y, L), consisting of a smooth fiber bundle Y → X and a Lagrangian density L, which yields the Euler–Lagrange differential operator acting on sections of Y → X.

In classical mechanics, many dynamical systems are Lagrangian systems. The configuration space of such a Lagrangian system is a fiber bundle Q → ℝ over the time axis ℝ. Definitions. In Lagrangian field theory, the Lagrangian as a function of generalized coordinates is replaced by a Lagrangian density, a function of the fields in the system and their derivatives, and possibly the space and time coordinates themselves.

In field theory, the independent variable t is replaced by an event in spacetime (x, y, z, t) or still more generally by a point s on a manifold. The book provides a review of classical mechanics and coverage of critical topics including holonomic and non-holonomic systems, virtual work, the principle of d’Alembert for dynamical systems, the mathematics of conservative forces, the extended Hamilton’s principle, Lagrange’s equations and Lagrangian dynamics, a systematic procedure.

Let the mechanical system fulﬁll the boundary conditions r(t1) = r(1) and r(t2) = r(2). Then the condition on the system is that it moves between these positions in such a way that the integral S = Zt 2 t1 L(r,r,t˙)dt () is minimized. Here S is called the action (hence also the name of the theorem) and L is the Lagrangian of the system.

“This book is excellent providing a solid foundation in analytical mechanics. The selection of topics, the analysis used for the description of all the key concepts, the historical description of the very many characters appearing along the development of the theory, including the rigorous mathematical analysis used for the exposition of the different chapters, makes it a very useful textbook.

It reviews the basic lemma on commuting vector fields. The chapter further discusses the case of Hamiltonian vector fields and uses the theory of normal forms to show the relation between periodic solutions near equilibrium and critical points of suitable function F on the level sets of H 2.

What has been attempted here is not only a survey of critical theory as a concept. If we now set = 0, then the condition for uto be a critical point of J, which is ’0(0) = 0 for all, is Z b a @F @u d dx @F @u x (x)dx= 0; for all.

Since this must hold for all functions = (x), using Lemma 1 below, we can deduce that pointwise, i.e. for all x2[a;b], necessarily umust satisfy the Euler{Lagrange equation shown.

tu Lemma 1. is the starting point for deriving the Euler-Lagrange equations. Although you have covered the Calculus of Variations in an earlier course on Classical Mechanics, we will review the main ideas in Section There are several advantages to working with the Lagrangian formulation, including 1.

Theory (Chapter 5), Motion in a Non-Inertial Frame (Chapter 6), Rigid Body Motion (Chapter 7), Normal-Mode Analysis (Chapter 8), and Continuous Lagrangian Systems (Chapter 9).

Each chapter contains a problem set with variable level of diﬃculty; sections identiﬁed with an asterisk may be omitted for a one-semester course. Lastly, in order. In other words, one can use any coordinate systems or even just parts of some coordinate systems, as long as the possible positions of every mass point is adequately described by the coordinates and the appropriate constraints.

For this reason, the coordinates entering the Lagrangian are called generalized coordinates. Usually, one chooses.(a) Findthe critical pointsof f 1g1 2g2 mgm; treating 1, 2, m as unspeciﬁed constants.

(b) Find 1, 2,m so that the critical points obtained in (a) satisfy the con-straints. (c) Determine which of the critical points are constrained extreme points of f. This can usuallybe done by physical or intuitivearguments.
