The Hamilton-Jacobi formalism of classical mechanics has always occupied a marginal role in celebrated presentations of classical mechanics. However, since the works of C. Caratheodory, the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism has gained greater prominence, even though it has never been central in quantization problems. In the project we shall revisit the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism in classical mechanics of constrained systems, so we can propose an approach in equal footing to the traditional formalism, due to Dirac.
