Introduction to the Calculus of Variations
We continue our investigation of nding maximum and minimum values associated with
various quantities. Instead of nding points where functions have a relative maximum or
minimum value over some domain

Supplementary Application 5:
Calculus of Variations
First encounters with dierential equations are often motivated by an underlying physical
dynamical system. In colloquial terms, the question usually posed takes the formGiven the
mechanism, how does it r

Q1:
A bead of mass m is constrained to move on a frictionless ring of radius
r. The system is located a distance R from a heavy object of mass M.
(Assume that M > the mass of the
