Introduction To The Calculus Of Variations - Mathematical Tracts For Physicists by William E. Byerly; 1 edition; First published in ; Subjects: My family, My posse of friends (aka brother's and sisters of other mothers), My planet, My country, My home towns: Texas and Seattle, cheese, Roman Empire, Communism and Democracy (There is still good in every idea that has . The calculus of variations is one of the oldest subjects in mathematics, yet is very much alive and is still evolving. Besides its mathematical importance and its links to other branches of mathematics, such as geometry or differential equations, it is widely used in physics, engineering, economics and biology. The Calculus of Variations owed its origin to the attempt to solve a very interesting and rather narrow class of problems in Maxima and Minima, in which it is required to find the form of a function such that the definite integral of an expression involving that function and its derivative shall be a . Abstract: This book considers posing and the methods of solving simple linear boundary-value problems in classical mathematical physics. The questions encompassed include: the fundamentals of calculus of variations; one-dimensional boundary-value problems in the oscillation and heat conduction theories, with a detailed analysis of the Sturm-Liouville boundary-value problem and .

Charles MacCluer wrote a book on the subject in for students with a minimal background (basically calculus and some differential equations), Calculus of Variations: Mechanics, Control and Other Applications.I haven't seen the whole book,but what I have seen is excellent and very readable. MacCluer says in the introduction his goal was to write a book on the subject that doesn't replace. Summary "The calculus of variations is one of the oldest subjects in mathematics, and it is very much alive and still evolving. Besides its mathematical importance and its links to other branches of mathematics, such as geometry or differential equations, it is widely used in physics, engineering, economics and biology. Introduction A huge amount of problems in the calculus of variations have their origin in physics where one has to minimize the energy associated to the problem under consideration. Nowadays many problems come from economics. Here is the main point that the resources are restricted. There is no economy without restricted resources. Introduction to the Calculus of Variations.
