Many integrable systems can be described by a variational principle, which goes by two names: "Lagrangian multiform" and "Pluri-Lagrangian structure".

It can be thought of as a Lagrangian counterpart to the common Hamiltonian formulation of integrabilty. I will aim to give an overview of its application to integrable ODEs, PDEs, and difference equations.
