**Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Geometries: Applications to Analytical Mechanics**

by Radu Miron

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**ISBN/ASIN**: 3659710199**Number of pages**: 266

**Description**:

The aim of the present text is twofold: to provide a compendium of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian geometries and to introduce and investigate new analytical Mechanics: Finslerian, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian. The fundamental equations (or evolution equations) of these Mechanics are derived from the variational calculus...

**Huseyin Canbolat**-

**InTech**

Lagrangian mechanics is widely used in several areas of research and technology. It is simply a reformulation of the classical mechanics by the mathematician Joseph-Louis Lagrange in 1788. Since then, this approach has been applied to various fields.

**Queen's University**

These notes deal primarily with the subject of Lagrangian mechanics. The control theory we discuss here is quite elementary, it will serve to give a flavour of the subject so that people can see if the area is one which they'd like to pursue.
