**Electric and Magnetic Aspects of Gravitational Theories**

by Francois Dehouck

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 240

**Description**:

This thesis deals with the construction of conserved charges for asymptotically flat spacetimes at spatial infinity in four spacetime dimensions in a hopefully pedagogical way. As a first motivation of this work, it highlights the difficulties one encounters when trying to understand the gravitational duality, present at the linearized level, in the full non-linear Einstein's theory or even just in an asymptotic regime of it.
