Sketch of Lagrangian Formalism ; Hamiltonian Formalism ; Canonical Transformations of Two-Dimensional Phase Space ; Integral Invariants. Formalism of classical mechanics underlies a number of powerful This book considers the basics facts of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, as well as related Included format: EPUB, PDF; ebooks can be used on all reading devices.
Thus even without constraints both formalism can be not equivalent, see Section 9.
But as far as I understand, if we keep ourselves confined to systems with holonomic constraints only and whose Lagrangian function is "standard" or "regular" i. But in fact they are, for lots of systems of interest.
Note that, systems sattisfying the second of the above assumptions are sometimes called "mechanical" or "pure mechanical" systems in the literature. On the other hand, one does not have to go far in order to find systems violating one or both of the above assumptions: rolling without slipping is a common system with non-holonomic constraints and generally systems with resistance forces -various friction forces for example- violate the second of the above assumptions.
Note that Legendre's transformation, transforms functions on a vector space to functions on the dual space. In this case, it transforms the Lagrangian function on the tangent bundle of the configuration space manifold to the Hamiltonian function on the cotangent bundle of the configuration space manifold.
Such systems are more general than conservative systems and fall into the class of monogenic systems. Now, regarding your first question: I don't think it would be suitable to speak about "superiority" or "richer structure".
If we consider the passage to quantum mechanics, then both formalisms are suitable to handle the elementary aspects of the quantisation problem at both levels, first and second quantization as well : Hamilton's equations have almost the same typical form in quantum mechanics with their classical counterparts, although their interpretation is quite different in the quantum case -but this is an apparently different story.
The road to quantisation through the hamiltonian formalism is generally refered to as canonical quantisation while the road through Lagrangian formalism is known as path integral quantization.
Regarding your second question, and since you are asking for references, this article appears to discuss examples of classical Hamiltonian systems possessing no Lagrangian formulation. The mathematical constructions involved are explicitly described and explained, so the book can be a good starting point for the undergraduate student new to this field.
At the same time and where possible, intuitive motivations are replaced by explicit proofs and direct computations, preserving the level of rigor that makes the book useful for the graduate students intending to work in one of the branches of the vast field of theoretical physics. To illustrate how classical-mechanics formalism works in other branches of theoretical physics, examples related to electrodynamics, as well as to relativistic and quantum mechanics, are included.
