Focusing on applications relevant to modern physics, this text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students surveys variational principles, examining their relationship to dynamics and quantum theory. It stresses the history and theory of these concepts rather than their mechanics, providing many insights into the development of quantum mechanics. 1968 edition.
