This thesis deals with the construction of conserved charges for asymptotically flat spacetimes at spatial infinity in four spacetime dimensions in a pedagogical way. It highlights the difficulties with understanding the gravitational duality...

We present gravitation as a theory in which the coordinates are distances and velocities between galaxies. We show three possibilities for the Universe to expand. Comparison with general relativity theory is finally made ...
