Time inversion for Euler equation

Consider Euler equation for continuum body: $$\frac{\partial u^i}{\partial t}+\mathbf u\cdot \nabla u^i=- \frac{1}{\rho} \frac{\partial p}{\partial x^i} $$ where $\rho$ is the mass density, $p$ is ...

Matrix Representations of Galilean group

The general group element (in the vector representation) $$ \left [{ \begin{array} {c} \bar x^1 \\ \bar x^2 \\ \bar x^3 \\ \bar t \\ 1 \\ \end{array} } \right] = \left[ ...

Casimir Invariants of the Galilean group

I had studied a couple of things about Galilean and Poincare group. But in the Galilean group, there is not enough clarity on how to calculate generators for boosts ($B_i$), which if I do it seems I ...

Galilean Transform

I tried to solve a problem using two different ways and I had some trouble, the problem is: We define a symmetry transform of the expected value of $\vec{P}$ like this: $$\langle \psi|\vec{P}|\psi ...

How to show that a general Galilean transformation in three dimensions is a conformal transformation?

Suppose two particles with equal mass move and then collide. We can easily show that the angle of collision is ninety degree if we choose our frame of reference moving with velocity equal to one of ...

Galilean group time interval

I have a question that arised by reading A Course in Modern Mathematical Physics by Peter Szekeres. He defines the galilean space $\mathbb{G}^{4}$ to be the space of events with a structure ...
