Let $\Omega(\mathcal{Q})$ be the set of functions $q:\mathbb{R^n} \to \mathcal{Q}$, then a //functional// S is a map | Let $\Omega(\mathcal{Q})$ be the set of functions $q:\mathbb{R^n} \to \mathcal{Q}$, then a //functional// S is a map | ||

So we can see how a functional is a //function of functions// as we said before, this is the reason why the notation $S[\cdot]$ instead of $S(\cdot)$, to remind that it is more that the eyes meet. | So we can see how a functional is a //function of functions// as we said before, this is the reason why the notation $S[\cdot]$ instead of $S(\cdot)$, to remind that it is more that the eyes meet. |
