This long-awaited book by two of the foremost researchers and writers in the field is the first part of a treatise that covers the subject in breadth and depth, paying special attention to the historical origins, partly in applications, e.g. from geometrical optics, of parts of the theory. A variety of aids to the reader are provided: besides the very detailed table of contents, an introduction to each chapter, section and subsection, an overview of the relevant literature (in Vol. 2) plus the references in the Scholia to each chapter, in the (historical) footnotes, and in the bibliography, and finally an index of the examples used throughout the book. Both individually and collectively these volumes have already become standard references.

The foundations of calculus of variations The problem of the calculus of variations evolves from the analysis of func-tions. In the analysis of functions the focus is on the relation between two sets of numbers, the independent (x) and the dependent (y) set. The func-tion f creates a one-to-one correspondencebetween these two sets, denoted as y. The history of the calculus of variations is tightly interwoven with the history of mathematics, [9]. The ﬁeld has drawn the attention of a remarkable range of mathematical luminaries, beginning with Newton and Leibniz, then initiated as a subject in its own right by the Bernoulli brothers Jakob and Johann. The ﬁrst major developments.
