hello everyone,

some differential equations are written in terms of a field perspective, some from the point of view of a particle moving through the field....

Navier-stokes eqns can be derived from Newton' s 2nd law applied to a particle.

What advantage is there in viewing things from a particle point of view( Lagrangian view)?

I guess classica mechanics is based on this view.
