### How are symmetries defined mathematically? [duplicate]

I have started working on differential geometry very recently. I am little bit familiar with mathematical concepts such as manifolds, differential forms and associated concepts. As I was speeding ...

### Conservation of energy

I have given one-dimensional motion of the particle directed horizontally. A problem says: "...Show that for this given motion Conservation of Energy Law holds.". Since Energy can intuitively be ...

### A kind of Noether's theorem for the Hamiltonian formalism

How can I (conveniently?) show that an invariance of the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian (i.e. the kinetic as well as the potential energy are independently invariant) will lead to a conservation law using ...

### Global part of a local symmetry?

What is exactly meant by "Global part of a Local symmetry"? What are its implications on a field theory at classical level? What are its implications at quantum level? How is it related to symmetry ...

### Small unclarity in proof of Noether's Theorem

I'm trying to understand the proof of Noether's Theorem in my Classical Mechanics class. We formulated it as follows: A continous symmetry is defined as a flow $\phi^{\lambda}(q(t))$ which leaves the ...

### Noether charge of local symmetries

If our Lagrangian is invariant under a local symmetry, then, by simply restricting our local symmetry to the case in which the transformation is constant over space-time, we obtain a global symmetry, ...

### Relativistic Lagrangian transformations

I need to study the relativistic lagrangian of a free particle. It's $\ L= - m c^2 \sqrt[2]{1- \frac{|u|^2}{c^2}}$ I need to study the translation, boost and rotation symmetry. I say it doesn't ...

### Topological vs. non-topological noetherian charges

What (if any) is the relationship between the conserved (non-topological) noetherian charges and topological charges? Namely, is there any "generalization" of the Noether's first theorem that includes ...
Consider $\mathcal{N}=1,d=4$ SUSY with $n$ chiral superfields $\Phi^i,$ Kaehler potential $K,$ superpotential $W$ and action ($\overline{\Phi}_i$ is complex conjugate of $\Phi^i$)  S= \int d^4x \...
