In this project we propose Lagrangian Neural Networks (LNNs), which can parameterize arbitrary Lagrangians using neural networks. In contrast to Hamiltonian Neural Networks, these models do not require canonical coordinates and perform well in situations where generalized momentum is difficult to compute (e.g., the double pendulum). This is particularly appealing for use with a learned latent representation, a case where HNNs struggle. Unlike previous work on learning Lagrangians, LNNs are fully general and extend to non-holonomic systems such as the 1D wave equation.
