In this course we will develop a more abstract viewpoint in which one thinks of the dynamics of a system described by an arbitrary number of generalized coordinates, but in which the dynamics can be nonetheless encapsulated in a single scalar function: the Lagrangian, named after the French mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange (1736–1813), or the Hamiltonian, named after the Irish mathematician Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1805–1865).

This little book is of a strictly elementary character, and is intended for the use of students whose knowledge of Geometry and Algebra is not presumed to extend beyond the first two Books of Euclid and the solution of simple Quadratic Equations.
