# Conformal properties of charges in scalar tensor gravities

@article{Deser2006ConformalPO, title={Conformal properties of charges in scalar tensor gravities}, author={Stanley Deser and Bayram Tekin}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2006}, volume={23}, pages={7479-7482} }

We study the behaviour under conformal transformations of energy and other charges in generic scalar–tensor models. This enables us to conclude that the ADM/AD masses are invariant under field redefinitions mixing metric and scalar despite the permitted slow asymptotic falloff of massless scalars.
