Noether's theorem

Noether's theorem states that every differentiable symmetry generated by local actions has a corresponding conservation law.

 


Explanation

If a system has a continuous symmetry property, then there are corresponding quantities whose values are conserved in time.

 


Additional information

The theorem was proven by the German mathematician Emmy Noether in 1915.
