This monograph explores various aspects of the inverse problem of the calculus of variations for systems of ordinary differential equations. The main problem centers on determining the existence and degree of generality of Lagrangians whose system of Euler-Lagrange equations coincides with a given system of ordinary differential equations.

The inverse problem of the calculus of variations is the problem of finding variational principles for systems of differential equations. By using the general theory of the variational bicomplex, it is shown that the inverse problem for ordinary differential equations is equivalent to the problem of finding differential two forms, with certain prescribed algebraic properties, which are closed.

The aim of the present book is to give a systematic treatment of the inverse problem of the calculus of variations, i.e.

how to recognize whether a system of differential equations can be treated as a system for extremals of a variational functional (the Euler-Lagrange.

Amer. Math. Soc. 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.

There has been a great deal of activity in the study of this problem since the early 20th century. A notable advance in this field was a paper by the American. This book presents a modern treatment of material traditionally covered in the sophomore-level course in ordinary differential equations.

While this course is usually required for engineering students the material is attractive to students in any field of applied science, including those in the biological standard analytic methods for solving first and second-order differential 1/5(2).
