Hamiltonian may refer to

In both mathematics and physics (specifically mathematical physics), (after William Rowan Hamilton):

the term Hamiltonian refers to any energy function defined by a Hamiltonian vector field, a particular vector field on a symplectic manifold;

more specifically, as an adjective it is used in the phrases:
