The book is less formal than Sagan's book Introduction to the Calculus of Variations . If you are a scientist or an engineer, you may want to consider Elsgolc's Calculus of Variations (Dover Books on Mathematics) and Weinstock's books first and then Fox's book.

The book is less formal than Sagan's book Introduction to the Calculus of Variations (Dover Books on Mathematics) and Gelfand and Fomin's Calculus of Variations (Dover Books on Mathematics) but more rigorous than Weinstock's Calculus of Variations: with Applications to Physics and Engineering.

Introduction to the Calculus of Variations (Dover Books on Mathematics). However, this is not the right book to learn calculus of variations; I would have preferred a different title such as & to Optimization Problems' to make its content more obvious. Since the books selects several topics to present, one can hardly get a global picture for the traditional material of calculus of variations. Although the author says that the classics on the topic show their age, with all my apologies to him, I do actually prefer them.

This book, which includes many strategically placed problems and over 400 exercises, is directed to advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a. .The calculus of variations is a mathematical discipline that may best. Invariance of the eulerlagrange.

This book, which includes many strategically placed problems and over 400 exercises, is directed to advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a background in advanced calculus and intermediate differential equations, and is adaptable to either a one- or two-semester course on the subject.

American Mathematical Monthly The purpose of this text is to lay a broad foundation for an understanding of the problems of the calculus of variations and its many methods and techniques, and to prepare readers for the study of modern optimal control theory. The treatment is limited to a thorough discussion of single-integral problems in one or more unknown functions, where the integral is employed in the riemannian sense. The first three chapters deal with variational problems without constraints.

Автор: Sagan, Hans Название: Introduction to the Calculus of Variations ISBN: 0486673669 ISBN-13 . Описание: This book by Robert Weinstock was written to fill the need for a basic introduction to the calculus of variations

Описание: This book by Robert Weinstock was written to fill the need for a basic introduction to the calculus of variations. Simply and easily written, with an emphasis on the applications of this calculus, it has long been a standard reference of physicists, engineers, and applied mathematicians. The author begins slowly, introducing the reader to the calculus of variations, and supplying lists of essential formulae and derivations.

This clear, rigorous introduction to the calculus of variations covers applications to geometry, dynamics, and physics

This clear, rigorous introduction to the calculus of variations covers applications to geometry, dynamics, and physics. Focusing upon problems with one independent variable, the text connects the abstract theory to its use in concrete problems. This clear, rigorous introduction to the calculus of variations covers applications to geometry, dynamics, and physics. It offers a working knowledge of relevant techniques, plus an impetus for further study.

*American Mathematical Monthly*The purpose of this text is to lay a broad foundation for an understanding of the problems of the calculus of variations andits many methods and techniques, and to prepare readers for the study of modern optimal control theory.The treatment is limited to a thorough discussion of single-integral problems in one or more unknown functions, where the integral is employed in the riemannian sense.The first three chapters deal with variational problems without constraints. Chapter 4 is a self-contained treatment of the homogeneous problem in the two-dimensional plane. In Chapter 5, the minimum principle of Pontryagin as it applies to optimal control problems of nonpredetermined duration, where the state variables satisfy an autonomous system of first-orderequations, is developed to the extent possible by classical means within the general framework of the Hamilton-Jacobi theory. Chapter 6 is devoted to a derivation of the multiplier rule for the problem of Mayer with fixed and variable endpoints and its application to the problem of Lagrange and the isoperimetric problem. In the last chapter, Legendre's necessary condition for a weak relative minimum and a sufficient condition for a weak relative minimum are derived withinthe framework of the theory of the second variation.This book, which includes many strategically placed problems and over 400 exercises, is directed to advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a background in advanced calculus and intermediate differential equations, and is adaptable to either a one- or two-semester course on the subject.
