Definitions Bounded set: Let <M,ρ> be a metric space. We say that the subset A of M is bounded if there exists a positive number L such that ρ(x,y)≤L (x,y∈A) (Wikipedia) Diameter of a set: If A is bounded, we define diameter of A (denoted by diam A) as diam A= ρ(x,y). If A is not…

What is a Catenary Curve? In physics and geometry, a catenary is the curve that an idealized hanging chain or cable assumes under its own weight when supported only at its ends. Catenary curves were for a long time misunderstood to be parabolas, and has a history behind this shape worth reading! (Continue reading on…
Calculus of variations is a subject where you study the extrema (maximum or minimum) of a function of functions. We know that, to find the extrema (maximum or minimum) of a “functional” of the form we first identify and substitute in Euler Equation (Or sometimes called Euler-Lagrange Equation) to obtain a Ordinary Differential Equation, solving…
