The projective symplectic geometry of higher order variational problems: Minimality conditions

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We associate curves of isotropic, Lagrangian and coisotropic subspaces to higher order, one parameter variational problems. Minimality and conjugacy properties of extremals are described in terms self-intersections of these curves.
