Noether’s Theorem and Lie-Bäcklund Symmetries
In the preceding chapters we established the algorithm to determine Lie groups of point transformations of differential equations and developed methods to solve differential equations using such symmetries. In this chapter we study one of the most important applications of symmetries to physical problems, namely, the construction of conservation laws.
