This chapter introduces the basic setting: Tonelli Lagrangians and Hamiltonians on a compact manifold. It discusses their main properties and some examples, and provides the opportunity to recall some basic facts on Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics (and on their mutual relation), which will be of fundamental importance in the discussion thereafter.

Keywords:   Tonelli Lagrangians, Hamiltonians, compact manifold, Lagrangian dynamics, Hamiltonian dynamics
