# A geometrical analysis of the field equations in field theory

@article{EcheverriaEnriquez2001AGA, title={A geometrical analysis of the field equations in field theory}, author={Arturo Echeverr'ia-Enr'iquez and Miguel C. Mu{\~n}oz-Lecanda and Narciso Rom'an-Roy}, journal={International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences}, year={2001}, volume={29}, pages={687-699} }

We give a geometric formulation of the field equations in the
Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms of classical field theories
(of first order) in terms of multivector fields. This formulation
enables us to discuss the existence and nonuniqueness of
solutions of these equations, as well as their integrability.
