Conserved currents from nonlocal constants in relativistic scalar field theories

  title={Conserved currents from nonlocal constants in relativistic scalar field theories},
  author={Mattia Scomparin},
. Nonlocal constants are functions that are constant along motion but whose value depends on the past history of the motion itself. They are a powerful tool to provide first integrals in classical mechanics and, in this respect, a new approach to get nonlocal constants within the framework of lagrangian scalar field theory is introduced. We derive locally-conserved currents from them, and we prove the consistency of our results by recovering some standard Noetherian results. Applications include… 



Lagrangian dynamics by nonlocal constants of motion

A simple general theorem is used as a tool that generates nonlocal constants of motion for Lagrangian systems. We review some cases where the constants that we find are useful in the study of the

Noether's theorem in classical field theory

Nonlocal constants of motion in Lagrangian Dynamics of any order

We describe a recipe to generate “nonlocal” constants of motion for ODE Lagrangian systems. As a sample application, we recall a nonlocal constant of motion for dissipative mechanical systems, from

Thermodynamics of perfect fluids from scalar field theory

The low-energy dynamics of relativistic continuous media is given by a shift-symmetric effective theory of four scalar fields. These scalars describe the embedding in spacetime of the medium and play

Nonlocal currents as Noether currents

The first two nonlocal currents in the general two-dimensional chiral models are derived as Noether currents. The associated infinitesimal field transformations are shown to obey a group

Nonlocal Symmetries and Ghosts

The local theory of symmetries of differential equations has been well-established since the days of Sophus Lie. Generalized, or higher order symmetries can be traced back to the original paper of

Nonlocal constants of motion and first integrals in higher-order Lagrangian Dynamics

Within the framework of higher-order Analytical Dynamics in one independent real variable t, a higher-order Lagrangian of order N ∈ N is a scalar smooth function of the form L(t, q, q, q, . . . , q)

The Gravity of the Classical Klein-Gordon Field

The work shows that the cosmological constant can be considered as a second order correction to the Newtonian gravity and shows the emergence of a theory-derived quantum CPTD that allows to have a stable quantum vacuum without postulating a non-zero classical CC.
