**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.

The main goal of this document is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

What is this theory of relativity and why is it so important? The mathematics of it are too much for most of us, but we can get some notion of it by a familiar illustration. A discussion of the more intelligible features of the theory of relativity.
