Editorial Review Product Description This clear, rigorous introduction to the calculus of variations covers applications to geometry, dynamics, and physics. Focusing upon problems with one independent variable, the text connects the abstract theory to its use in concrete problems. It offers a working knowledge of relevant techniques, plus an impetus for further study. 1962 edition. |

Admirable, but hard to learn from
Very deep and detailed Now, where do you begin? Usually at University, I guess, this subject is treated in a way that makes most folks think that just about all "Calculus of Variations" problems can be solved with the Euler Lagrange equation, and from there on, you just have to solve the resulting differential equation. And I guess that's sometimes possible. But in the real world, sometimes you end up with that equation simply not working, and your problem is more messy and not expressible using "nice" functions. Now, this is where this book begins. We start by looking at "sufficient" and "necessary" conditions for solutions - and these are not the same things! This at least allows you to work out whether a solution is there, for goodness sake, before you waste time trying to find it. Ewing does better in later chapters. He showcases a whole slew of problems which deserve special consideration, and this gets at times really exciting, covering all sorts of ideas about what we mean by optimum values for integrals, and how to specify systems of equations when one method doesn't really work too well. One question which he digs into, which is very entertaining, is the problem of what an integral of a function really means. For example, we all know about the Riemann integral - the limit of a sum - but had you ever heard about the Weierstrass integral - or the Lebesgue integral? Mr Ewing serves up these exotic and flavorsome new varieties in a most satisfactory fashion, with lots of examples to help. The text never gets too far away from real problems. How easy that would have been! This book is so amazingly practical and also deeply committed to a really thorough treatment. He also gives excellent commentary on the history of this subject. Overall I would say that this book is not one which belongs on the shelf with the numerical methods books, or the operational research section (thats what numerical optimisation is called over here in Britain), but I would get this now anyway before it goes out of print (if Dover are so crazy as to do that). ...

Solutions to problems and exercises
You must have this. Courant also published a standard reference work (also two volumes, I believe) on Mathematical Physics.While the level of mathematics required is post-grad, I was still able to read sizeable sections of it without getting lost. We can only hope Dover decides to publish Courant's works one day, to make them a little more affordable.But still, you can buy both volumes of Courant's intro to calculus for about the same price as a modern calculus text that waters down the material, and on top of that, provides inadequate explanation for the material it does cover. ...

Editorial Review Product Description From the reviews: "…the book contains a wealth of material essential to the researcher concerned with multiple integral variational problems and with elliptic partial differential equations. The book not only reports the researches of the author but also the contributions of his contemporaries in the same and related fields. The book undoubtedly will become a standard reference for researchers in these areas. …The book is addressed mainly to mature mathematical analysts. However, any student of analysis will be greatly rewarded by a careful study of this book." M. R. Hestenes in Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications "The work intertwines in masterly fashion results of classical analysis, topology, and the theory of manifolds and thus presents a comprehensive treatise of the theory of multiple integral variational problems." L. Schmetterer in Monatshefte für Mathematik "The book is very clearly exposed and contains the last modern theory in this domain. A comprehensive bibliography ends the book." M. Coroi-Nedeleu in Revue Roumaine de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées |

Editorial Review Product Description This is the first of two books on methods and techniques in the calculus of variations. Contemporary arguments are used throughout the text to streamline and present in a unified way classical results, and to provide novel contributions at the forefront of the theory. This book addresses fundamental questions related to lower semicontinuity and relaxation of functionals within the unconstrained setting, mainly in L^p spaces. It prepares the ground for the second volume where the variational treatment of functionals involving fields and their derivatives will be undertaken within the framework of Sobolev spaces. This book is self-contained. All the statements are fully justified and proved, with the exception of basic results in measure theory, which may be found in any good textbook on the subject. It also contains several exercises. Therefore,it may be used both as a graduate textbook as well as a reference text for researchers in the field. Irene Fonseca is the Mellon College of Science Professor of Mathematics and is currently the Director of the Center for Nonlinear Analysis in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research interests lie in the areas of continuum mechanics, calculus of variations, geometric measure theory and partial differential equations. Giovanni Leoni is also a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. He focuses his research on calculus of variations, partial differential equations and geometric measure theory with special emphasis on applications to problems in continuum mechanics and in materials science. |
