AAAAHHH!!! Calculus of Variations
See attached
This is a project for an upper level math methods of physics course. My background is insufficient and ultimately, I don't know what is going on, AT ALL. The work I've provided is the product of the collective efforts of my partner, myself and, our supervising professor. I can follow the argument the professor has made but, I could not have made that argument myself.
My partner is exhausted and, I just need some direction with the variational calculus in solving the form we derived for the EulerLagrange equation.

See attached. Thank you all, very, very much.
