Abstract:

Noethers Theorem links symmetries and conservation laws for Euler Lagrange Systems. What is a conservation law Answer a divergence expression which is zero on solutions of the system. CONCLUSIONS The underlying algebraic pattern of the exact variational complexes provide a framework for generalisations of Noethers Theorem and conservation laws in general. Symmetry-adapted moments would appear to be necessary.
