Following work of Malkin, Man’ko and Lipkin, Dothan proposed a general definition for the dynamical group generators associated to a given Hamiltonian, based on the symmetry group of the corresponding time‐dependent quantum mechanical equation of motion for the system. In this paper we establish a procedure to derive the dynamical symmetry algebra of a quantum system, which arises naturally from Noether’s theorem by allowing time dependent symmetry transformations. The method is applicable to non‐stationary systems, as illustrated for the varying‐mass harmonic oscillator.
