Solved problems in Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics / Claude Gignoux, Bernard Silvestre-Brac. - Dordrecht ; London : Springer, c2009. - xviii, 464 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. - Grenoble sciences . - Grenoble sciences .

Includes bibliographical references and index.

The Lagrangian formulation -- Lagrangian systems -- Hamilton's principle -- Hamiltonian formalism -- Hamilton-Jacobi formalism -- Integrable systems -- Quasi-integrable systems -- From order to chaos.

This work bridges the gap between the well-known Newtonian mechanics and the studies on chaos, ordinarily reserved to experts. Several topics are treated: Lagrangian, Hamiltonian and Jacobi formalisms, studies of integrable and quasi-integrable systems.
