Dynamical principle

We suggest a formulation of the dynamical principle for mechanics in which time is not a preferred evolution parameter but plays the role of a new generalized coordinate. The advantage of this approach is the possibility of extending it to dynamical systems in which there is no natural evolution parameter (thermodynamics, equilibrium economics, and the like).
