Noether's Theorems and Gauge Symmetries

  title={Noether's Theorems and Gauge Symmetries},
  author={Katherine Brading and Harvey R. Brown},
Consideration of the Noether variational problem for any theory whose action is invariant under global and/or local gauge transformations leads to three distinct theorems. These include the familiar Noether theorem, but also two equally important but much less well-known results. We present, in a general form, all the main results relating to the Noether… CONTINUE READING
