Why Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism

  1. Nov 2, 2009 #1
    Dear all,
    could please give my some links or references to material that justifies the mathematical and physical reasons for introducing these two formalisms in mechanics?

    Thanks.

    They make some problems easier to solve. Some people would add that they place the foundations of mechanics on more solid gound.
