### Hamiltonian or not?

Is there a way to know if a system described by a known equation of motion admits a Hamiltonian function? Take for example $$\dot \vartheta_i = \omega_i + J\sum_j \sin(\vartheta_j-\vartheta_i)$$ ...

### Classical dynamics of a matrix

For a system of interacting particles, we can formulate Hamiltonian dynamics in terms of a vector of position coordinates $q$ and a vector of momentum coordinates $p$. Then the Hamiltonian takes the ...

### How to get the canonical momentum from the velocity when doing a Legendre transform?

For a Lagrangian $$L=\frac{1}{2}m\dot{q}^2-\frac{1}{2}m\omega^2 q^2$$ the Hamiltonian is defined as $$H=p\dot{q}-L$$ where $p$ is the canonical momentum, which is defined as \$p=\frac{\partial L}{\...

### Slowly Varying Functions for Adiabatic Invariants - The Same as Karamata's?

In section 49 (and 50) of Landau and Lifschitz's "Classical Mechanics", adiabatic invariants are discussed, which are related to functions which vary adiabatically or "slowly" with time. Admittedly ...
