Equilibrium Points of a System given its Lagrangian

  1. Apr 6, 2014 #1
    Given a system's Lagrangian, How can we calculate the equilibrium points corresponding to the system? also how can we determine if that's a stable equilibrium?

    Equilibrium points are extrema of the potential energy. They will be stable if they are minima.
