Description for The Action Principle and Partial Differential Equations. (AM-146), Volume 146 Paperback. Introduces methods in the theory of partial differential equations derivable from a Lagrangian. This book develops a general theory of integral identities, the theory of "compatible currents," which extends the work of E Noether. Series: Annals of Mathematics Studies. Num Pages: 328 pages, Ill.

This book introduces new methods in the theory of partial differential equations derivable from a Lagrangian. These methods constitute, in part, an extension to partial differential equations of the methods of symplectic geometry and Hamilton-Jacobi theory for Lagrangian systems of ordinary differential equations. A distinguishing characteristic of this approach is that one considers, at once, entire families of solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equations, rather than restricting attention to single solutions at a time. The second part of the book develops a general theory of integral identities, the theory of "compatible currents," which extends the work of E. Noether. Finally, the ... Read more
