Proof. To prove theorem 1 we use Lie’s algorithm. The condition of invariance of the
system L(E, H), i.e. (25), with respect to operator X has the form

(36)
XL = 0,
L=0

where

X = X + [D? (? l ) ? Ej D? (? j )]?E? + [D? (? l ) ? Hj D? (? j )]?H? ,

is the prolonged operator. From the invariance condition (36) we obtain the system of
equations which determine the coefficient functions ? µ , ? l , ? l of the operator (26):
µ µ

?k = 0, ?0 = 0, ?k = 0, ?0 = 0, ??? = 0, ?E a = 0, ?H a = 0,
? k = ?E k ?0 + ?0 + E a ?a ? E a E k ?a ,

Having found the general solution of system (37), we get the explicit form of all
the linear independent symmetry operators of system (25), which have the structure
(27)–(35). Operators of Lorentz rotations J0k is given by the linear combination of
(1) (2)
the Galilean operators Gk and Gk :

(1) (2)
(38)
J0k = Gk + Gk .

All the following statements, given here without proofs, can be proved in analogy
with the above-mentioned scheme.

4. The finite transformations and invariants
We present some finite transformations which are generated by the operators J0k :

J01 : x0 > x0 = x0 ch ?1 + x1 sh ?1 ,
x1 > x1 = x1 ch ?1 + x0 sh ?1 , (39)
x2 > x2 = x2 , x3 > x3 = x3 ,

E 1 ch ?1 + sh ?1 H 1 ch ?1 + sh ?1
E >E H >H

The operators J02 , J03 generate analogous transformations. ?1 is the real group
(2)
parameter of the geometric Lorentz transformation. Operators Gk generate the
following transformations:
(2)
G1 : x0 > x0 = x0 + ?1 x1 , xk > xk = xk ,
Ek Hk
Ek > Ek = , Hk > Hk = .
1 + ?1 E 1 1 + ?1 H 1
(2) (2) (1)
Analogous transformations are generated by the operators G2 , G3 . Operators Gk
generate the following transformations:
(1)
G1 : x0 > x0 = x0 , x1 > x1 = x1 + x0 ?1 ,
x2 > x2 = x2 , x3 > x3 = x3 ,
E 1 > E 1 = E 1 + ?1 , H 1 > H 1 = H 1 + ?1 ,
E2 > E2 = E2, E3 > E3 = E3,
H 2 > H 2 = H 2, H 3 > H 3 = H 3.

The operators G2 , G3 generate analogous transformations.
It is easy to verify that

E 2 = 1, H2 = 1 (41)
I1 = ,
1 ? E2 1 ? H2

is invariant with respect to the nonlinear transformations of the Poincar? group which
e
are generated by representations (28), (38).
The invariant of the Galilei group which is generated by representations (28), (31)
has the form:
E2H 2
(42)
I2 = 2,
EH

whereas the Galilei group which is generated by representations (28), (30) has the
invariant
I3 = (E ? H)2 . (43)
