I have been trying to understand gauge theory. I am familiar with the Noether's theorem applied in the context of simpler text book cases like poincare invariant Lagrangians.

This is my question: Are there Noether currents corresponding to the local gauge symmetries too and would there be an infinity of them since there could possibly be an infinite set of linearly independent basis functions that generate the gauge symmetry?

thanks!
