I'm slowly working my way through this sheet, but I keep encountering things not in the notes. I'm also having trouble understanding what wikipedia has to say:

Euler?Lagrange equation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I have a function $\displaystyle f(x,y,y',x')=(x^2+y^2)\sqrt{1+(x')^2+(y')^2}$ so my first equation is:

$\displaystyle \frac{\partial f}{ \partial y}-\frac{\partial}{\partial x} \left( \frac{\partial f}{\frac{\partial y}{\partial x}} \right)- \frac{\partial}{x'} \left( \frac{\partial f}{\frac{\partial y}{\partial x'}} \right)$

The second equation would be the same but with $\displaystyle y'$ instead of $\displaystyle x'$.

Am I reading this correctly?
