Lecture notes on Mather's theory for Lagrangian systems
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 72

Description:
In these lecture notes we shall try to to provide a brief, but hopefully comprehensive introduction to Mather's theory for Lagrangian systems and its subsequent developments by Ricardo Mane and Albert Fathi. We shall consider only the autonomous case (i.e., no dependence on time in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian).

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.
