I want to give a talk related to calculus of variations. Does anyone know any fun/interesting papers that are somewhat simple to understand?
Could be anything related to calculus of variations, including Lagrangian/Hamiltonian mechanics.
I'm having really bad luck in my search, been trying all afternoon. I find good books, but not good papers. Thanks for the help!

Don't know any papers but there are Physics texts that give elementary explanations and examples- non heavy math.
Feyynmann's Lectures Book 2.
Black Holes describes the principle of maximal time.
