-<​blockquote>​Quantum mechanics uses the generators of the corresponding symmetry as measurement operators. For instance, this has the consequence that a measurement of momentum is equivalent to the action of the translation generator. (Recall that invariance under translations leads us to conservation of momentum.) The translation generator moves our system a little bit and therefore the location is changed.<​cite>​Physics from Symmetry by J. Schwichtenberg</​cite></​blockquote>​
