Circular discs have an Eulerian description in terms of polar coordinates, but these are not well adapted to geometries of more general discs. For disc models with a sufficient number of conserved quantities a Lagrangian description can be more useful. This is useful for discs which have large scale departures from axisymmetry. The dynamics of a near Keplerian eccentric disc are rich and take the form of a nonlinear wave equation.
