Symmetry and Nother's Theorem

  1. May 11, 2012 #1

    I working through my notes on Nother's theorem and invariance under translation. I don't understand how they get expression 7.3, from the line before 7.3 (see attachment). Can anyone explain.

    Hi hawaiifiver !
    You mean the part where the Chasles relation is used to get from one line to the other ?
    (integral from a to c is integral from a to b + integral from b to c (plus one of those integrals is reverted, that is integral from a to b is 'minus' integral from b to a)) ?
