## Main Question or Discussion Point

if F is any function and H is the hamiltonian, then the Poisson Bracket of F and H, is given by:

[F,H] = dF/dt - [tex]\partial[/tex]F/[tex]\partial[/tex]t

Can someone show me how the right side of this equation comes about?

Also how can the normal derivative of F w.r.t t be different from the partial of F w.r.t t?

[F,H] = dF/dt - [tex]\partial[/tex]F/[tex]\partial[/tex]t
