Symmetries in Lagrangian Dynamics
Ferrario, Carlo; Passerini, Arianna
European Journal of Physics, v28 n5 p867-875 Sep 2007
In the framework of Noether's theorem, a distinction between Lagrangian and dynamical symmetries is made, in order to clarify some aspects neglected by textbooks. An intuitive setting of the concept of invariance of differential equations is presented. The analysis is completed by deriving the symmetry properties in the motion of a charged particle in a constant magnetic field.
