- Summary:
- dependence on generalized velocities

Hi Pfs

When instead of the variables x,x',t the lagrangiean depends on the trandformed variables q,q',t , time may be explicit in this lagrangian and q' (the velocity of q) may appear outside. I am looking for a toy model in which tine is not explicit in L but where the velocities appear somhere else than in the kinetic term.

i would then calculate the conjugated momentum and the hamilttonian (is it consrrained?)

thanks
