**Second Order Equations With Nonnegative Characteristic Form**

Moment order equations with nonnegative attribute shape represent a brand new department of the speculation of partial differential equations, having arisen in the final two decades, and having gone through a very in depth improvement in recent times. An equation of the shape (1) is called an equation of moment order with nonnegative attribute shape on a suite G, kj if at each one aspect x belonging to G we now have a (xHk~j ~ zero for any vector ~ = (~l' .

As an example, we consider the following twice diﬀerentiable Multivariate functionals 39 functions x = x(t), y = y(t), z = z(t). The variational problem in this case is presented as t1 f (t, x, y, z, x, ˙ y, ˙ z)dx. ˙ I(x, y, z) = t0 Here the independent variable t is the parameter, and there are three dependent variables : x, y, z. Applying the steps just explained for this speciﬁc case results in the system of Euler-Lagrange equations ∂f d ∂f − = 0, ∂x dt ∂ x˙ ∂f d ∂f − = 0, ∂y dt ∂ y˙ and ∂f d ∂f − = 0.

J= t0 The arbitrary t0 and the speciﬁc t1 = t0 + 2π boundary points clearly cover a complete loop. 1 Functionals with several functions The variational problem of multiple dependent variables is posed as x1 I(y1 , y2 , . . , yn ) = x0 f (x, y1 , y2 , . . , yn , y1 , y2 , . . , yn )dx with a pair of boundary conditions given for all functions: yi (x0 ) = yi,0 and yi (x1 ) = yi,1 for each i = 1, 2, . . , n. The alternative solutions are: Yi (x) = yi (x) + i ηi (x); i = 1, . . , n with all the arbitrary auxiliary functions obeying the conditions: ηi (x0 ) = ηi (x1 ) = 0.

This problem is not solvable by analytic means; however, it can be solved by an iterative procedure numerically by considering the unknown coeﬃcient as a variable: c1 = x, and intersecting the curve s y = xsinh( ) x and the horizontal line L . 2 The minimal cable length must exceed the width of the span, hence we expect the cable to have some slack. 6175. Clearly, depending on the length of the cable between similarly posted suspension locations, diﬀerent catenary curves may be obtained. The Lagrange multiplier may ﬁnally be resolved by the expression λ = c1 cosh( s ) − h.
