On invariant form of the mass conservation law


Gudimenko A. I., Guzev M.A.

2014, issue 1, . 33-40


Abstract
The theory of fiber bundles is used for representation of the mass conservation law in a form that is invariant under general transformations of the four space-time coordinates. generalized formulation of the law is proposed on the base of transition to covariant differentiation. Some physical interpretations of the generalized formulation are discussed.

Keywords:
conservation laws, Lie derivative, bundles, covariant derivative
