The subject of calculus of variations is to find optimal solutions to engineering problems where the optimum may be a certain quantity, a shape, or a function. Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers addresses this very important mathematical area applicable to many engineering disciplines. Its unique, application-oriented approach sets it apart from the theoretical treatises of most texts. It is aimed at enhancing the engineer’s understanding of the topic as well as aiding in the application of the concepts in a variety of engineering disciplines. The first part of the book presents the fundamental variational problem and its solution via the Euler–Lagrange equation. It also discusses variational problems subject to constraints, the inverse problem of variational calculus, and the direct solution techniques of variational problems, such as the Ritz, Galerkin, and Kantorovich methods. With an emphasis on applications, the second part details the geodesic concept of differential geometry and its extensions to higher order spaces. It covers the variational origin of natural splines and the variational formulation of B-splines under various constraints. This section also focuses on analytic and computational mechanics, explaining classical mechanical problems and Lagrange’s equations of motion.

Applied Calculus, Volume 1 provides information pertinent to the fundamental principles of the calculus to problems that occur in Science and Technology. This book illustrates the use of the calculus to determine the motion of different systems, to find the areas and volumes of certain figures, and to determine the turning points on a curve. Organized into four chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the idea of the slope or gradient of a curve to derive further information from the distance-time graph. This text then examines the notation of the calculus to derive the equations of motion for a particle moving in a straight line with uniform acceleration. Other chapters consider the equation of the tangent of the curve. This book discusses as well the importance of an interval along the curve. The final chapter deals with the maximum and the minimum point on a curve. This book is a valuable resource for students.
