Hi,
I'm confused about the exact interpretation of Noether's theorem for fields. I find that the statement of the theorem and its proof are not presented in a precise manner in books. My main question is: what is the precise heuristic argument that leads to Noether's theorem? The question is presented in the attached pdf document. Thanks

I excluded time because I used a 2D space analogy, which was easy to illustrate in a figure. I'm interested in the idea, so it doesn't matter if I use time or not.

What is the Precise Heuristic Argument that Leads to Noether's Theorem
if you are looking for some elementary treatment then this might help.I am not sure what is really the problem.
