In the present work, we formulate a generalization of the Noether Theorem for action-dependent Lagrangian functions. The Noether’s theorem is one of the most important theorems for physics. It is well known that all conservation laws, e.g., conservation of energy and momentum, are directly related to the invariance of the action under a family of transformations. However, the classical Noether theorem cannot be applied to study non-conservative systems because it is not possible to formulate… 

A geometric approach to the generalized Noether theorem

We provide a geometric extension of the generalized Noether theorem for scaling symmetries recently presented by Zhang P-M et al (2020 Eur. Phys. J. Plus 135 223). Our version of the generalized

Generalized nonconservative gravitational field equations from Herglotz action principle

We present an alternative nonconservative gravitational theory based on the Herglotz variational principle in a fully covariant form. The present model may be seen as an improvement of the theory

Herglotz's Variational Problem for Non-Conservative System with Delayed Arguments under Lagrangian Framework and Its Noether's Theorem

The aim of this paper is to explore Herglotz’s variational problem for a non-conservative system with delayed arguments under Lagrangian framework and its Noether‘s theorem and derive the non-isochronous variation formulas of Hamilton–HerglotZ action containing delayed arguments.

Nonsmooth Herglotz variational principle

—In this paper, the theory of smooth action-dependent Lagrangian mechanics (also known as contact Lagrangians) is extended to a non-smooth context appropriate for collision problems. In particular,

Starting from the geometric description of quantum systems, we propose a novel approach to time-independent dissipative quantum processes according to which energy is dissipated but the coherence of

Noether’s Theorem and its Inverse of Birkhoffian System in Event Space Based on Herglotz Variational Problem

Herglotz variational principle, in which the functional is defined by a differential equation, generalizes the classical ones defining the functional by an integral. The principle gives a variational
