Im studying Quantum Field Theory as part of my undergraduate course, and am currently looking at Noether's Theorem which has led me to the following calculation of the divergence of the Stress-Energy Tensor. I'm having difficulty in seeing how we get from line (31) to line (32). Is the 2nd term in the square brackets zero? if so, why?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
