Lectures on the Calculus of Variations
by Harris Hancock
Publisher: Cincinnati University Press 1904
Number of pages: 322
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.

These notes describe the Aubry-Mather-Theory within the calculus of variations. The text consists of the original lectures of Juergen Moser and a bibliographic appendix with comments on the current state of the art in this field of interest.

This book provides a detailed exposition of variational geometry and subdifferential calculus in their current forms beyond classical and convex analysis. Also covered are set-convergence, set-valued mappings, epi-convergence, duality, etc.
by Oskar Bolza - The University of Chicago press
The emphasis lies entirely on the theoretical side: I have endeavored to give clear definitions of the fundamental concepts, sharp formulations of the problems, and rigorous demonstrations. Difficult points have received special attention.

These notes are intended as a straightforward introduction to the calculus of variations which can serve as a textbook for undergraduate and beginning graduate students. The text covers functions of n variables and ordinary differential equations.
