Lagrangian for heat equation.

e proceed to verify that the expression MATH is a Lagrangian for the heat equation MATH MATH

We form the "action" function as follows MATH and calculate the variation MATH hence, MATH Similarly, the calculation of MATH leads to MATH

Unfortunately, general Hamiltonian technique is not applicable to the heat equation because the defining equation for p ( generalized impulse equation ) does not have a solution for q ( generalized impulse solution ).
