The action (not the time) is the analogue of the optical path length. Fermat’s principle is the consequence of the existence of families of “iconal surfaces” to which the families of light rays are orthogonal, in the same way as trajectories are orthogonal to S =const surfaces. 42) where X = Xo/n = c/nu, XO is the vacuum wavelength, and n ( r ) is the refractive index. 43) where S = SO ( X 0 / 2 7 r ) S 1 ( X 0 / 2 7 r ) ~ S 2 . . Substituting in the wave equation, one finds in first approximation the iconal equation (vsO)~ = n2 .

These are Hamilton equations, since a ( p - Po)/& = 0 and a(-q q o ) / d p = 0. (i) Find the Hamiltonian. (ii) What is the ( p , q ) trajectory for energy E? 4 Show that the 4-dimensional phase space volume is conserved in the elastic collision of two particles in one dimension. 5 Non-conservative forces invalidate Liouville's theorem. Show that, if = -yq (y > 0), q = p/m, areas in the (p, q)-plane decrease exponentially with time. 6 According to Liouville's theorem, conservative forces cannot change the small-scale phase space density of a system of particles.

As one knows from analytical geometry, b is the “impact parameter”, shortest distance of F from the asymptotes u/x = fb/a. For k > 0 (attractive force), E = mui/2, where WO is the velocity of the incident particle at infinite distance from F.
