**Lectures on the Calculus of Variations**

by Harris Hancock

**Publisher**: Cincinnati University Press 1904**Number of pages**: 322

**Description**:

Instead of giving separate accounts of Legendre's and Jacobi's works introductory to the general treatment, I have produced their discoveries in the proper places in the text, and I believe that by this means confusion has been avoided which otherwise might be experienced by students who are reading the subject for the first time.
