This is the second course in a series of courses on The Calculus of Variations which covers the second variation and some generalised functionals.

I would recommend having completed the first course or alternatively have a good grounding on the basics of Calculus of Variations.

We will cover the fundamentals of the second variation which will consist of a thorough grounding in conjugate points and envelopes. Then we will move onto looking at some more generalised functionals.

Expected Outcomes

  1. Second Variation
  2. Legendre Test
  3. Jacobi Accessory Equation
  4. Conjugate Points
  5. Generalised Functionals
  6. Green’s Theorem
