So far we have discussed mainly continuous symmetries of dynamical

systems. In addition to continuous symmetries, however, there are a

few discrete symmetries which play a fundamental role in physics. By

definition, these are not continuous symmetries and, consequently, we

cannot talk of an infinitesimal form for such transformations. In this

chapter, we will describe three such important symmetries, namely,

parity (P), time reversal (T) and charge conjugation (C) where the

first two correspond to space-time symmetry transformations while

the last is an example of an internal symmetry transformation.
