I'm doing my final year in maths and am just away to start my 4th year project. It involves learning a subject on my own then submitting a report and doing a presentation. The topic I have to do is "Calculus of variations".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been reading about the topic briefly on a few webpages and it does seem a bit daunting!

Does anybody know any decent books worth reading that provide a good explanation of the subject? Also, would it be helpful if I revised certain areas of calculus before trying to learn the topic?

Thanks
