Mosc. Univ. Mech. Bull. 67, No. 4, 103-104 (2012); translation from Vestn. Mosk. Univ., Ser. I 67, No. 4, 70-72 (2012).
Summary: Hamilton’s variational principle for mechanical systems with unilateral constraints is considered. It is shown that the action functional attains its local maximum on the class of variations belonging to the interior of the domain admissible for motion. An example is given.
