Lectures on the Calculus of Variations

Publisher: The University of Chicago press
ISBN/ASIN: 141818201X
Number of pages: 304

The emphasis lies entirely on the theoretical side: I have endeavored to give clear definitions of the fundamental concepts, sharp formulations of the problems, and rigorous demonstrations. Difficult points, such as the proof of the existence of a 'field', the details in Hilbert's existence proof, etc., have received special attention.
