These notes deal primarily with the subject of Lagrangian mechanics. Matters related to mechanics are the dynamics and control of mechanical systems. The control theory we discuss here is quite elementary, and does not really touch upon some of the really challenging aspects of the subject. 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 ...

Lagrangian mechanics is widely used in several areas of research and technology. It is simply a reformulation of the classical mechanics by the mathematician Joseph-Louis Lagrange in 1788. Since then, this approach has been applied to various fields.

These lecture notes provide a self-consistent introduction to Classical Mechanics. They are normally used for an intermediate course in Classical Mechanics by inserting a more general and rigorous introduction to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods.
