Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can any1 recommend a book that will show the derivation of the Euler-Lagrange equation.

(I am learning in the context of cosmology ie. to extremise the interval).

Ideally the derivation would be as simple/fundamental as possible - my maths is not up to scratch!
