At the end of this paper we introduce for consideration the four-dimensional generalized velocity to simplify the expressions for the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian.
We shall introduce 4-vector of the generalized velocity with the covariant index:
mu]] according to [1], and the 4-vector of generalized velocity (66):
From here it follows that the contribution to the energy of substance unit with mass m is made by the timelike component of 4-vector of generalized velocity with the covariant index [S.
As there is the 4-vector of generalized velocity [S.
