# Conservation Laws in Classical and Quantum Physics

Chapter

## Abstract

The relation between the conservation laws and the symmetry properties of space and time is examined. If the simplest possible equation of motion takes the place of Newton’s equation, the usual conservation laws are not obtained. In the quantum physics, on the contrary, there is a superabundance of conservation laws and their physical significance is not obvious.
