We propose a new classical approach for describing a system composed of $n$ interacting particles with variable mass connected by a single field with no predefined form ($n$-VMVF systems). Instead of assuming any particular nature or analytical function for representing the variation of the masses or field, we propose them as unknown functions dependent on the particle positions and velocities. The work presents the Lagrangian theory which incorporates such variations which are find using only… Expand
