This clear, rigorous introduction to the calculus of variations covers applications to geometry, dynamics, and physics. Focusing upon problems with one independent variable, the text connects the abstract theory to its use in concrete problems. It offers a working knowledge of relevant techniques, plus an impetus for further study.3/5(2). Robert Weinstock: Mathematical Memories. Robert Weinstock's Calculus of Variations, first published by McGraw-Hill in and reprinted by Dover in , is one of Dover's longest-running books in mathematics. In a memoir written in the s, Weinstock recalled how, after he received his PhD in physics from Stanford in , he worked for a time at Harvard's Radar Research Laboratory as.
What is a good book on the Calculus of Variations, for a second year PhD student? Stack Exchange Network Stack Exchange network consists of Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to . Prelude to Geometric Optics When light interacts with an object that is several times as large as the light’s wavelength, its observable behavior is like that of a ray; it does not prominently display its wave characteristics. We call this part of optics “geometric optics.” This chapter will concentrate on such situations.
It's century old algebraic geometry, but it's still algebraic geometry. $\endgroup$ – bubba Oct 15 '13 at $\begingroup$ Certainly, learning why vector bundles and moduli spaces are useful in physics would be a good start, though I'm afraid I don't know enough about physics to give you good references for that. $\endgroup$ – user Mathematical Tools for Physics, University of Miami.

From the reviews: “This book is a fresh presentation of field theory, using a modern mathematical language. This covers some interesting actual subjects concerning a mathematical model formulation of high-energy particles physics.
this book can be very useful for beginners. can be recommended to the attention of all students and scientists that aim to find Variations short direct Cited by: This book is a collection of survey articles in a broad field of the geometrical theory of the calculus of variations and its applications in analysis, geometry and physics.
It is a commemorative volume to celebrate the sixty-fifth birthday of Professor Krupa, one of the founders of modern geometric variational theory, and a major contributor Author: Olga Krupková (Editor), David Saunders (Editor). Presents a collection of survey articles in the field of the geometrical Variations of the calculus of variations and its applications in analysis, geometry and physics.
This book provides a variety of important results, techniques and applications. The book provides in a single volume a thorough introduction to topology and differential geometry, as well Variations many applications to both mathematical and physical problems.
It is aimed as an elementary text and is intended for first year graduate students. The book is ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students of physics, engineering or mathematics as a course text or for self study. This third edition includes an overview of Cartan's exterior differential forms, which previews many of the geometric concepts developed in the by: This is pretty much as close as you can get to an exposition of differential geometry in a general manifold setting without going to a rigorous book on smooth manifolds (to my knowledge the only good, relatively popular book that is even less relaxed than.
This comprehensive introduction to the calculus of variations and its main principles also presents their real-life applications in various contexts: mathematical physics, differential geometry, and optimization in Cited by: 1.

Do carmo' Differential Geometry(now available from Dover) is a very good textbook. For a comprehensive and encyclopedic book Spivak' 5-volume book is a gem.
The gold standard classic is in my opinion still Kobayashi and Nomizu' Foundations of differential geometry, from the 60's but very modern. "Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians wanting to understand modern physics, and physicists wanting to learn geometry.
It gives an introduction to modern quantum field Author: Jürgen Jost. Introduction to Differential Geometry Lecture Notes.
This note covers the following topics: Manifolds, Oriented manifolds, Compact subsets, Smooth maps, Smooth functions on manifolds, The tangent bundle, Tangent spaces, Vector field, Differential forms, Topology of manifolds, Vector bundles.
There aren't a lot of up-to-date treatments of the calculus of variations for mathematicians nowadays,let alone physics students. To be fair,though,that's changing recently with the publications of the texts by van Brunt and Dracogna.
The Greiner series (a German version of the Russian L-L) contains at least 2 volumes on Field Theory: Relativistic Wave Equations and Field Quantization. This book is a monographical work on natural bundles and natural operators in differential geometry and this book tries to be a rather comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets which appear in different branches of differential geometry.
