Item description for Selected Chapters in the Calculus of Variations: Lecture Notes by Oliver Knill (Lectures in Mathematics. ETH Zürich) by Jürgen Moser...

These lecture notes describe the Aubry-Mather-Theory within the calculus of variations. The text consists of the translated original lectures of Jrgen Moser and a bibliographic appendix with comments on the current state of the art in this field of interest. Students will find a rapid introduction to the calculus of variations, leading to modern dynamical systems theory. Differential geometric applications are discussed, in particular billiards and minimal geodesics on the two-dimensional torus. Many exercises and open questions make this book a valuable resource for both teaching and research.

Reviews - What do customers think about Selected Chapters in the Calculus of Variations: Lecture Notes by Oliver Knill (Lectures in Mathematics. ETH Zürich)?

very bad book  May 11, 2004
This books contains lecture notes for a course of Moser published after his death in 1999. It is a good example
that this practise is not very advisable since certainly Moser
would not have been happy with the outcome (the book
has been edited by a student of his).

The book is riddled with a very high number of misprints
and inaccuracies which leaves the impression
that no one has read the book prior to publication.
Many results are misstated and hard to understand
(for instance the basic theorem 1.4.4. should be
... Assume F_pp\ge 0 on \Omega. Then \gamma^star
can be embedded in an extremal field. ...)

The publisher would be well advised to offtake the book
immediately and publish a carefully corrected version
at a later time.
