The aim of this book is to discuss the present situation of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms involving higher order derivatives. The achievements of differential geometry in formulating a more modern and powerful treatment of these theories is described and an extensive review of the development of these theories in classical language is also given.The general solution is obtained from Taylor polynomial expression 1. ac - a(t) = 2 + aa#39;aquot;(t) ... In (2) the solutions are, in general, different from the aquot;free solutionsaquot; of (1 ), since for zero values of f(q, d, t) at a time t new singularities appear. We mayanbsp;...
