I'm new in this area, and I have some trouble understanding the next concepts, I'll be glad if somebody can give a sample definition or some examples of the concept of "Local Lagrangian" and "configuration variables" on sistems with finite-number or freedom degrees. Thanks in advice.

  • $\begingroup$ It's right to say "Local Lagrangian" are the same that "Local Lagrangian Density"? $\endgroup$ – Ragnar1204 Mar 16 '17 at 19:47
  • $\begingroup$ Almost always AFAIK, density is implied. $\endgroup$ – user146020 Mar 16 '17 at 19:49
