Homework Help: Invariance of physical laws

  1. Nov 26, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The invariance of physical laws to a coordinate change suggests a symmetry group structure. Can the operations of cordinate transformation be written as group operations? What is the group?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    At the moment I do not really know how to start the question, hint perhaps?

    What is the context of this question (book reference, for example) ? Special relativity, general relativity, QFT ?
