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).

These notes deal primarily with the subject of Lagrangian mechanics. The control theory we discuss here is quite elementary, it will serve to give a flavour of the subject so that people can see if the area is one which they'd like to pursue.
