We present an introduction to mass and angular momentum in General Relativity. After briefly reviewing energy-momentum for matter fields, first in the flat Minkowski case (Special Relativity) and then in curved spacetimes with or without symmetries.

Tensor analysis is useful because of its great generality and compact notation. This monograph provides a conceptual foundation for students of physics and engineering who wish to pursue tensor analysis as part of their advanced studies.

This text reviews the development of Einstein's thought on general covariance (the fundamental physical principle of GTR), its relation to the foundations of general relativity and the evolution of the continuing debate over his viewpoint.
