Description

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.
