Conserved charges and positivity of energy for asymptotically locally AdS spacetimes

3rd October 2005

Author: Kostas Skenderis (University of Amsterdam)


In the first part of the talk we will discuss the construction of conserved charges associated with asymptotic symmetries of asymptotically locally AdS spacetimes. In the second part we will focus on the energy and discuss its positivity using the spinorial method of Witten.
