Main Question or Discussion Point

hey, In my physics class we are now learinging beginging to learn about lagrange ion mechanics and im a little stuck on the basics of it particularly fermat's principle (dealing with light travel) and applications of the Euler-Lagrange Equation, I cant seem to get many of the problems at the end of the chapter, does any one know a web site or something that has a few worked out examples on how to do these?

thanks

If you are looking for example problems, I would say the best source other than online sources I don't know of would be the Schaums series on Lagrangian Dynamics. They cover many different examples. Of course the best way to learn is to do them yourself!

Good luck.
