The VariationalCalculus package contains commands that perform calculus of variations computations.
This package performs various computations for characterizing the extremals of functionals.
Each command in the VariationalCalculus package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.
As the underlying implementation of the VariationalCalculus package is a module, it is also possible to use the form VariationalCalculus:-command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
