Summary and Info
The text provides an introduction to the variational methods used to formulate and solve mathematical and physical problems and gives the reader an insight into the systematic use of elementary (partial) convexity of differentiable functions in Euclidian space. By helping students directly characterize then the solutions for many minimization problems, the text serves as a prelude to the field theory for sufficiency. It lays the groundwork for further explorations in mathematics, physics, mechanical and electrical engineering, and computer science.
