Noether’s theorem for singular Lagrangians. (English) Zbl 0655.58028
Summary: The correspondence between constants of motion and symmetries of a singular Lagrangian system is studied. It is shown to be a one-to-one correspondence after an appropriate definition of both concepts. The theory is illustrated with an example.
