Almost every equation involving variables x, y, etc. we write down in this course will be true for some. The calculus of variations, whose origins can be traced to the works of Aristotle and Zenodoros, is now Ii vast repository supplying fundamental tools of exploration not only to the mathematician, but-as evidenced by current literature-also to those in most branches of science in which mathematics is applied.

City University of New York. 7 Calculus of Variations Ref: Evans, Sections , , Motivation The calculus of variations is a technique in which a partial diﬀerential equation can be reformulated as a minimization problem. In the previous section, we saw an example of this technique. Letting vi denote the eigenfunctions of (⁄) ‰ ¡∆v = ‚v x 2 Ω v = 0 x.

To minimize P is to solve P 0 = 0. There may be more to it, but that is the main point. For a quadratic P(u) = 1 2 uTKu uTf, there is no di culty in reaching P 0 = Ku f = 0.

The matrix K is symmetric positive de nite at a minimum. What is the Calculus of Variations “Calculus of variations seeks to find the path, curve, surface, etc., for which a given function has a stationary value (which, in physical problems, is usually a minimum or maximum).” (MathWorld Website) Variational calculus had its beginnings in with John Bernoulli Applicable in Physics.

Notes on The Calculus of Variations Charles Byrne (Charles [email protected]) Department of Mathematical Sciences University of Massachusetts at Lowell Lowell, MAUSA April 2, 1 Introduction Typically, we have been concerned with maximizing or minimizing real-valued func-tions of one or several variables, possibly subject to constraints.

The history of the calculus of variations is tightly interwoven with the history of mathematics. The ﬁeld has drawn the attention of a remarkable range of mathematical luminaries, beginning with Newton and Leibniz, then initiated as a subject in its own right by the Bernoulli brothers Jakob and Johann.

I think than Young measures were introduced there. The book is even worth reading only for its jokes and anecdotes.

The discovery and justification of the results in this book, apart from their simple statements, do require, however, acquaintance with the principles of the calculus, and it is assumed that the reader has such an acquaintance. Calculus of Variations begins by studying special problems rather than the general theory.Calculus of variations, branch of mathematics concerned with the problem of finding a function for which the value of a certain integral is either the largest or the smallest possible.

Many problems of this kind are easy to state, but their solutions commonly involve difficult procedures of the differential calculus and differential equations.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.
