**Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Geometries: Applications to Analytical Mechanics**

by Radu Miron

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**ISBN/ASIN**: 3659710199**Number of pages**: 266

**Description**:

The aim of the present text is twofold: to provide a compendium of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian geometries and to introduce and investigate new analytical Mechanics: Finslerian, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian. The fundamental equations (or evolution equations) of these Mechanics are derived from the variational calculus...
