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.

A few hints to the literature are listed in an Appendix. Because some important questions are still open, these lecture notes are maybe of more than historical value.

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, e.g ?id=YkFLGQeGRw4C.

A word of advice for someone new to the calculus of variations: keep in mind that since this book is an older text, it lacks some modern context. For example, the variational derivative of a functional is just the Frechet derivative applied to the infinite-dimensional vector space of admissible ://.
