I'm looking for some applications of Morse theory to second order differential system,( or boundary value problems )

Someone can help me with a pdf or a book which has these applications ?

Thank you

Milnor's book on Morse theory contains applications to a famous second order equations, namely the geodesci equations. Morse's original motivation was investigation of geodescis. – Liviu Nicolaescu May 9 '13 at 11:35

@Liviu Nicolaescu : i read the from the page 67 to 69 and i don't find the system of second order – karima May 9 '13 at 20:00
