An Introduction to Lagrangian Mechanics
by Alain J. Brizard
Publisher: Saint Michael's College, Colchester 2007
Number of pages: 232
These lecture notes are meant to provide a self-consistent introduction to Classical Mechanics without the need of any additional material. They are normally used for an intermediate course in Classical Mechanics by inserting a more general and rigorous introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods suitable for undergraduate physics students at sophomore and junior levels.

These notes are intended as an elementary introduction into the ideas and the basic prescription of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics. The only physical principles we require the reader to know are Newton's three laws ...

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.

In these lecture notes we shall try to to provide a brief, but 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.

The aim is to provide a compendium of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian geometries and to introduce and investigate new analytical Mechanics: Finslerian, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian. The fundamental equations are derived from the variational calculus ...
