Solution of Problems in Calculus of Variations Using Parameterization Technique
Fatema Ahmed Sadeq

In this paper a direct method using parameterization technique is applied for solving some problems in calculus of variations. The parameterization technique based on Laguerre and Hermite polynomials is introduced to reduce a variational problem to quadratic programming problem. Examples are given to demonstrate the validity of method.
Keywords: calculus of variation, orthogonal polynomials, parameterization Technique.
