A derivative of the action is the lagrangian: $\displaystyle \frac{\partial S}{\partial t} = L$ and the definite integral of the lagrangian is the action: $\displaystyle S = \int_{t_0}^{t_1} L dt$ Can you demonstrate me how from 1st equation I can come to 2nd and viceversa?

Can't you just integrate both sides?
