Abstract

In 1834 Hamilton represented the differential equations of classical mechanics, i.e., the Lagrange equations
$$ \frac{d} {dt}\frac{\partial L} \partial \dot q = \frac{\partial L} \partial, $$
in “canonical” form
$$ \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {\dot{q} = \frac{{\partial H}}{{\partial p}},} & {\dot{p} = } \\ \end{array} \frac{{\partial H}}{{\partial q}}. $$
