  1. Hamilton's Law or Hamilton's Principle: A Response to Ulvi Yurtsever. [REVIEW]Cecil D. Bailey - 1983 - Foundations of Physics 13 (5):539-544.
    The law of varying action and Hamilton's principle of classical mechanics are discussed. It is now clear that the law of varying action, introduced by Hamilton in his papers of 1834 and 1935, was never recognized by either the mathematicians or other scientists who followed him. Why this occurred is discussed in this paper.

  • Comments on “A More Precise Statement of Hamilton's Principle”.Ulvi Yurtsever - 1983 - Foundations of Physics 13 (5):529-537.
    Among the problems C. D. Bailey has questioned in a recent paper (Ref. 1) are a precise and general formulation of Hamilton's variational principle and the establishment of a sufficiency criterion for this to be a minimum principle. In this paper, we will try to answer these questions using the geometric theory of classical mechanics.
