Calculus Do you know any books with solved problems on variations?

  1. Dec 12, 2016 #1
    Hi folks,

    There are plenty of books with theory, but to practice I only found one book by Krasnov. I am looking something like Schaums series for the Calculus of Variations. Do you know if something like that exists?

    I want to practice, seting up the problem (the integral), getting the differential equations, solving them, analyzing when it is a min or a max, or if it exists etc.

    Thanks!

    Did you check out problem books in mathematics by springer? There's a load of titles available.

    I didn't know those series, thanks for that.

    I had a look and apparently there is no specific volume for Variational Calculus, there are some on analysis that may contain a chapter maybe.
