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.

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 ...

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 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.

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.

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.
