We discussed the generalized momenta

pi = ∂L(q, ˙q,t)
˙qi

,

and how the canonical variables{qi,pj}describe phase space. One can

use phase space rather than {qi, ˙qj} to describe the state of a system

at any moment. In this chapter we will explore the tools which stem

from this phase space approach to dynamics.
