Phase space

A graph which shows all possible states of a system. In phase space we plot the value of a variable against possible values of the other variables at the same time. If a system had three descriptive variables, we plot the phase space in three dimensions, with each variable taking one dimension.

2, we develop mathematical considerations on conservation laws showing how the presence of symmetries allows the integration of the dynamical systems, which means that the phase-space (and general solution) can be "split" in a multi-space of "integrated" components.
