So I've been studying classical mechanics and have come across a small doubt with the solution provided to the problem in question from Landau's book. My question is: why are the coordinates for the particle given as they are in the solution? I imagine it has something to do with the harmonic oscillator, but I'd like to properly understand. I appreciate any kind of help, and I'm sorry if this post is somehow incorrect, it is my first one regarding questions.
