Brown, Harvey R. and Holland, Peter (2004) Dynamical versus variational symmetries: understanding Noether's first theorem. UNSPECIFIED.
It is argued that awareness of the distinction between dynamical and variational symmetries is crucial to understanding the significance of Noether's 1918 work. Specific attention is paid, by way of a number of striking examples, to Noether's first theorem, which establishes a correlation between dynamical symmetries and conservation principles.
