The variational principles are used to derive the algebraic and differential equations that must then be solved to determine the motion of the system. The beauty of the theory is in its generality and symmetry, which was of inestimable value in...

diversiﬁcation, the attractiveness of a particular asset when held in a portfolio
can diﬀer from its appeal when it is the sole asset held by an investor.

Algebra is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. As such, it includes everything from elementary equation solving to the study of abstractions such as groups, rings, and fields. The more basic parts of algebra are called elementary algebra, the more abstract...
