I've worked on this problem for forever and still don't really see the solution. Any help appreciated.

Say we have the Lagrangian for a scalar field that's $U(1)$ charged,$$\mathcal{L} ={1\over4}(F_{\mu\nu})^2 + |D_\mu\phi|^2 - M^2|\phi|^2,$$where $D_\mu = \partial_\mu - igA_\mu$ and $F_{\mu\nu} = \partial_\mu A_\nu - \partial_\nu A_\mu$. Calculate the conserved stress energy tensor that follows from invariance of $\mathcal{L}$ under spacetime translations.

    $\begingroup$ Do you know how to construct conserved quantities from symmetries of $\mathcal{L}$ using Noether's theorem? $\endgroup$ – Danu Oct 4 '14 at 12:31
