On invariant form of the mass conservation law

Gudimenko A. I., Guzev M.A.

2014, issue 1, . 33-40

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.

conservation laws, Lie derivative, bundles, covariant derivative
