    An attempt of the solution:

    My problem is question c. I don't have a clue how to see that the improved current is conserved... Can anyone help me?

    Update
    I managed to solve the question by using the Euler-Lagrange equations, up to a minus sign... can anyone see the minus sign mistake?

    Found it: actually if you change the sign of the current J or the term F, everything comes out nicely... So somewhere in those terms should be a mistake in the minus sign...
