Fist and second order constraints in a system?

  1. May 29, 2012 #1
    I've tried with Goldstein but no luck, i need to understand how the constraint, especially the second class act on system, i also referred Dirac's lecture, they were quiet good, but if u can suggest some books which can help me learn first and second class constraints with examples and problems that will help me visualize the concept it will really help a lot...thanks in advance

    "Lectures on Constrained Systems" Ghanashyam Date. I think you can get it on arxiv. It has some stuff, but maybe not enough for what your asking for.
