Gelfand at Moscow State University, this book actually goes considerably beyond the material presented in the lectures.

The aim is to give a treatment of the elements of the calculus of variations in a form both easily understandable and sufficiently modern. Considerable attention is devoted to physical applications of variational methods, e.g ?id=YkFLGQeGRw4C. A word of advice for someone new to the calculus of variations: keep in mind that since this book is an older text, it lacks some modern context.

For example, the variational derivative of a functional is just the Frechet derivative applied to the infinite-dimensional vector space of admissible ://.
