An excellent introduction to the calculus of variations with application to various problems of physics. The scope of application of those techniques has tremendously grown since the original edition of this book.

For example, the calculus of variation is extremely useful for R&D activities in image processing/5(34). Forsyth's Calculus of Variations was published inand is a marvelous example of solid early twentieth century mathematics.

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.

MacCluer says in the introduction his goal was to write a book on the subject that doesn't replace. Based on a series of lectures given by I. Gelfand at Moscow State University, this book actually goes considerably beyond the material presented in the lectures.

The aim is to give a treatment of the elements of the calculus of variations in a form both easily understandable and sufficiently modern. Considerable attention is devoted to physical applications of variational methods, /5(6).

The calculus of variations is a field of mathematical analysis that uses variations, which are small changes in functions and functionals, to find maxima and minima of functionals: mappings from a set of functions to the real numbers.

Functionals are often expressed as definite integrals involving functions and their ons that maximize or minimize functionals may be found. encyclopedic work on the Calculus of Variations by B.

The history of the calculus of variations is tightly interwoven with the history of mathematics, [9]. 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.
