Consider a real scalar interacting field theory with the Lagrangian density L = 1 2  m 2 2 2 3! 3 where is a real number. (a) (5 pts) Construct EulerLagrange equation for this theory. (b) (5 pts) Find the energymomentum tensor T for this theory and show explicitly that it is conserved, T = 0, for the fields satisfying EulerLagrange equation found in part (a). 2. The Lagrangian density for a twocomponent complex scalar field vector = parenleftbigg 1 2 parenrightbigg is given by L = vector vector  m 2 vector vector where Hermitean conjugation is defined by vector = ( 1 , 2 ) . (a) (3 pts) Show that the above Lagrangian is invariant under the following global SU (2) symmetry i i = parenleftbigg exp braceleftbigg i vector vector 2 bracerightbiggparenrightbigg ij j with vector...
