Canonical Equations

  • Dieter Besdo
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 54)


In this chapter we will calculate the canonical equations which belong to a simple problem. As we will see from the result, they will not enable us to find out the equations of motion in a simpler way than, for example by using LAGRANGE-equations of 2nd kind.
