Review of Classical Action Principles

This section grew out of lectures given by Schwinger at UCLA around 1974, which were substantially transformed into Chap.  8 of Classical Electrodynamics (Schwinger 1998). (Remarkably, considering his work on waveguide theory during World War II, now partially recorded in Ref. (Milton 2006), he never gave lectures on this subject at Harvard after 1947.)
