2. Calculus Of Variations
calculus of variations, calculus of variations by Authors SV Fomin,IM Gelfand Released 16 October, 2000 ISBN 0486414485 Paperback Sales Rank 17,182,
http://www.wkonline.com/a/Calculus_of_Variations_0486414485.htm

Extractions: This book, of which I studied the first four chapters for an independent study course (Im a senior undergrad) are very clear, very full, but beware it is mathematics and it is technical. To appriciate the material you really should have a year of "advanced calculus" also called "intro. real analysis" at some places. This means the formalities of limits, continuity, derivatives, integration and series. This will prepare you to understand and work through the proofs in the text. The problems are nice since they are varied (computational, physics, and proofs) and they do come with many answers and some hints, but you might find that having a mechanics book at your side motivates some of the problems.

3. Calculus Of Variations
calculus of variations, calculus of variations by Authors Robert Weinstock Released 01 June, 1974 ISBN 0486630692 Paperback Sales Rank 47,723,
http://www.wkonline.com/a/Calculus_of_Variations_0486630692.htm

Extractions: All of the beginning material on the calculus of variations is covered in the book, and its application to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, elasticity, quantum mechanics, and electrostatics. Isoperimetric problems are treated, the vibrating string and membrane, and the Sturm-Liouville system and its origin as an eigenvalue problem in variational calculus. In the latter, the reader can see the origing of some of special function solutions, such as the Bessel functions and Laguerre polynomials. The reading of this book will amply prepare the reader for applying it to problems in quantum field theory, economics, radiology, financial engineering, logistics, optimization theory, computational geometry, control theory, and the theory of evolutionary strategies. In addition, the book will allow the reader to move on to more advanced areas of mathematics, such as the theory of minimal surfaces, Morse theory, and geometric measure theory.

Extractions: e-mail: u0121@cs.imm.intec.ru , WWW: http://home.ural.ru/~iagsoft/index.html Abstract: In teaching the course of calculus of variations for students in mechanics at the Ural State University, a serious attention is paid to application of numerical methods in classical model problems. We consider the aerodynamic Newton problem, problems of the minimum rotation-surface and of brachistochrone. The last problem is examined also in non-classical formulation. The demonstration software developed with the participation of students is applied to these problems. Keywords: Variational analysis, education, computer software, numerical methods, multiprocessor systems 1. AERODYNAMIC NEWTON'S PROBLEM (ANP) The problem consists of searching the generating line y(x) of a rotation-body with the minimum resistance in a flow of rarefied ideal gas ( Newton, 1916

Extractions: Buy one from zShops for: Average review score: The best "introductory" book in Variational Calculus. A great book by a great mathematician Gelfand was one of the leaders of the great school of mathematics which, somehow, thrived in Soviet Union. I used uncountable times the copy of our library, as the original English edition, in the excellent translation of R. Silvermann, became very hard to find. I put it in the top of the list of books I wanted to buy. Now Dover put it into their catalogue. Great choice. I already ordered my copy! This is the best book on the Calculus of Variations. It contains, for instance, a wonderful treatment of Noether's theorem, hardly to be surpassed. The Hamilton-Jacobi equation is also treated with brilliance and clarity. Gelfand (and Fomin!) developed a style in which the precision of the mathematics does not interfere with the general panorama. The applications are very well selected and perfectly illustrate the theory. A great book, a great mathematician who can write, a great translator, by less than 10 bucks! Another great Silverman translation from the russian I used this book for a first year grad course in the calculus of variations some years ago. I found the book to be clear and pretty readable. I found the problem sets to be quite workable and covered the material well. I liked the fact that there were answers to many of them. The book is more rigourous than the treatments of this subjects found in math methods books like arfken but it is not highly abstract. (a style found in many math books at this level, and more difficult for me, not a professional mathematician, but a scientist) In fact I have found this quality to be a characteristic of most of the russian applied mathematics books translated by Richard Silverman, many of which are now published by Dover. This practical, clear, and rigourous approach of these books is excellent and I think almost all of these books on Dover have found their way onto my shelves.

Extractions: XiStrat Manual Prev Next One could compute formula for the volume and surface area (that is not the faces count) of where the graph is embedded on, second moments (together with the Eigenaxes (principal axes) and Eigenvalues of the inertia tensor) delivered by the layouting procedure of our graphs (though perhaps it's not a minimal volume strategy but minimal energy in springs procedure, anyway it's a cool variational principle, minimal value tasks with possibly multiple desired outcomes). See to see how the Laplacian matrix of the graph gets involved here as well. Just given the layouted boundary the complementing graph continuations for the other side of the line aren't uniquely determined in theory, or? And are the knots on those surfaces displayed properly, that is showing minimal energy stored in them? Can the proper optimal dynamics for the strategy games be derived from some variational principle? And such stuff should admit some Taylor-series like development basing on polynomial ground so that more effort would provide even better behavior then.

13. Calculus Of Variations
calculus of variations. Our research projects address both fundamental problems in the calculus of variations and applications, eg in nonlinear elasticity.
http://www.mis.mpg.de/sm/cvar/

Extractions: Calculus of Variations Many problems in physics, biology, engineering are governed by a maximization or minimization principle (for example for energy, entropy, fitness, ...). The corresponding optimality condition (called Euler-Lagrange equation) is usually a nonlinear partial differential equation and one can apply pde methods to study the minimizers. It has become clear, however, that often much more powerful methods are available if one exploits the minimization principle directly. The corresponding branch of mathematics is called the calculus of variations (because originally the Euler-Lagrange equation was derived by studying small variations of supposed minimizer). One example for the power of minimization principle arises when one studies a family of minimization problems (e.g. posed on a sequence of increasingly thinner three-dimensional structures). There is a general theory due to DeGiorgi, called Gamma-convergence, which shows that there exists a limiting minimization problem. No similarly flexible notion is known on the level of the corresponding Euler-Lagrange equations. Our research projects address both fundamental problems in the calculus of variations and applications, e.g. in nonlinear elasticity. The study of

Extractions: Dear Friends, I'm familar with the basics of calculus of varations. The problem, I've to solve right now is far beyond my experience, but probably easy for some of you. Therefore I'd like to ask for advice on the following problem: find y=f(x) so that I= Abs (Integrate( F(x,y,y') ) ) -> minimum where F is a complex valued function of the real valued x,y,y' Abs... absolute value The difficulty here is, that I can't write the problem down in the classical form : Integrate ( F(x,y,y')=minimum, where F is real. Any hint ? RuMo Date: 6 May 1997 11:03:29 -0500
