An Introduction to Lagrangian Mechanics
by

Publisher: Saint Michael's College, Colchester
Number of pages: 232

Description:
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.

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 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.
