The variational principle is a scientific principle used within the calculus of variations, which develops general methods for finding functions which extremize the value of quantities that depend upon those example, to answer this question: "What is the shape of a chain suspended at both ends?" we can use the variational principle that the shape must minimize the gravitational.

This book is devoted to the basic variational principles of mechanics: the Lagrange-D'Alembert differential variational principle and the Hamilton integral variational principle. These two variational principles form the main subject of contemporary analytical mechanics, and from them the whole colossal corpus of classical dynamics can be.

the variational integral form is known, one does not have to derive the corresponding differential equation. Also, most of the important variational statements for problems in engineering and physics have been known for over years.

Another important feature of variational methods is that often dual principles exist that allow one to.
