By focusing on the most popular pertubation methods this monograph aspires to give a unified overview and comparison of ways to construct conserved quantities and study symmetries in general relativity.
1. Conservation laws in theoretical physics: a brief introduction --
2. Field-theoretical formulation of general relativity: the theory --
3. Asymptotically flat spacetime in the field-theoretical formulation --
4. Exact solutions of general relativity in the field-theoretical formalism --
5. Field-theoretical derivation of cosmological perturbations --
6. Currents and superpotentials on arbitrary backgrounds: three approaches --
7. Conservation laws in an arbitrary multi-dimensional metric theory --
8. Conserved quantities in the Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity --
9. Generic gravity: particle content, weak field limits, conserved charges --
10. Conservation laws in convariant field theories with gause symmetrics --
appendices.
