The topics of my lecture are the nonlocal charges. Before I shall enter into the explanation of this notion of somewhat misleading name (it will turn out that the local properties of nonlocal charges are quite important in my presentation) let me say a few words about conventional charges in the context of symmetries in quantum field theory.
