## Calculus of Variations, Spring 2013
Robert V. Kohn
Professor of Mathematics

This is the web page for my Spring 2013 class
on the Calculus of Variations (MATH-GA 2660.001).
Material will be posted as the semester proceeds.

I previously taught a similar class in Fall 2009;
the associated notes are here.
This spring's version will start as in 2009, and
will be at about the same level, but there will
be some differences in the choice of topics.
