How did the Poisson brackets get derived, and from what.

  1. Apr 18, 2015 #1
    do they have a physical meaning and did they fall out of another theory.

    I have only ever seen them stated as a fact, I am assuming they are a result of something ie a consequence of another more fundamental theory.

    when are they used in a practical problem solving sense to solve real world problems?
