# derivation of Euler-Lagrange differential equation (advanced)

Suppose that $x_{0}\in D$. Choose $r$ such that the closed ball of radius $r$ about $x_{0}$ is contained in $D$. Let $q$ be any function whose support lies in this closed ball.

By the definition of $F$,

 ${\partial\over\partial\lambda}F(q_{0}+\lambda q)={\partial\over\partial\lambda% }\int_{D}L(x,q_{0}+\lambda q,dq_{0}+\lambda dq)\,d^{m}x$
 $={\partial\over\partial\lambda}\left(\int_{|x-x_{0}|\leq r}L(x,q_{0}+\lambda q% ,dq_{0}+\lambda dq)\,d^{m}x+\int_{x\in D\atop|x-x_{0}|>r}L(x,q_{0}+\lambda q,% dq_{0}+\lambda dq)\,d^{m}x\right)$

By the condition imposed on $q$, the derivative of the second integral is zero. Since the integrand of the first integral and its first derivatives  are continuous  and the closed ball is compact, the integrand and its first derivatives are uniformly continuous, so it is permissible to interchange differentiation and integration. Hence,

 ${\partial\over\partial\lambda}F(q_{0}+\lambda q)=\int_{|x-x_{0}|\leq r}{% \partial L(x,q_{0}+\lambda q,dq_{0}+\lambda dq)\over\partial\lambda}\,d^{m}x$
