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. 
Hawking-Hayward quasi-local energy under conformal transformations
We derive a formula describing the transformation of the Hawking-Hayward quasi-local energy under a conformal rescaling of the spacetime metric. A known formula for the transformation of the

Mass and angular momentum of black holes in low-energy heterotic string theory
We investigate conserved charges in the low-energy effective field theory describing heterotic string theory. Starting with a general Lagrangian that consists of a metric, a scalar field, a vector
Conserved charge of a gravity theory with $p$-form gauge fields and its property under Kaluza-Klein reduction
In this paper, we investigate the conserved charges of generally diffeomorphism invariant gravity theories with a wide variety of matter fields, particularly of the theories with multiple scalar
Noether and Abbott-Deser-Tekin conserved quantities in scalar-tensor theory of gravity both in Jordan and Einstein frames
We revisit the thermodynamic aspects of the scalar-tensor theory of gravity in the Jordan and in the Einstein frame. Examining the {\it missing links} of this theory carefully, we establish the
Extended phase space thermodynamics of black holes: A study in Einstein's gravity and beyond
In the extended phase space approach, one can define thermodynamic pressure and volume that gives rise to the van der Waals type phase transition for black holes. For Einstein’s GR, the expressions
Abbott–Deser–Tekin like conserved quantities in Lanczos–Lovelock gravity: beyond Killing diffeomorphisms
We obtain the conserved Abbott-Deser-Tekin (ADT)-{\it like} current for the Lanczos-Lovelock gravity for a diffeomorphism vector, which defines the horizon of a spacetime and, importantly, is not
Theoretical and Phenomenological Viability of Scalar Field Theories
The objective of this Thesis is to explore several related questions with regards to criteria for viability in scalar field theories. Roughly the first half is devoted to theoretical criteria, while
Alternative to particle dark matter
We propose an alternative to particle dark matter that borrows ingredients of MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) while adding new key components. The first new feature is a dark matter fluid, in the
Thermodynamic structure of a generic null surface and the zeroth law in scalar-tensor theory
We show that the equation of motion of scalar-tensor theory acquires thermodynamic identity when projected on a generic null surface. The relevant projection is given by Eabl k, where Eab = 8πT (m)


Conformal invariance of black hole temperature
It is shown that the surface gravity and temperature of a stationary black hole are invariant under conformal transformations of the metric that are the identity at infinity. More precisely, we find
Energy in generic higher curvature gravity theories
We define and compute the energy of higher curvature gravity theories in arbitrary dimensions. Generically, these theories admit constant curvature vacua (even in the absence of an explicit
Canonical variables for general relativity
The general theory of relativity is cast into normal Hamiltonian form in terms of two pairs of independent conjugate field variables. These variables are explicitly exhibited and obey ordinary
Non-minimal couplings, quantum geometry and black-hole entropy
The black-hole entropy calculation for type I isolated horizons, based on loop quantum gravity, is extended to include non-minimally coupled scalar fields. Although the non-minimal coupling
Behavior of quasilocal mass under conformal transformations
We show that in a generic scalar-tensor theory of gravity, the ``referenced'' quasilocal mass of a spatially bounded region in a classical solution is invariant under conformal transformations of the
Mass of rotating black holes in gauged supergravities
The masses of several recently-constructed rotating black holes in gauged supergravities, including the general such solution in minimal gauged supergravity in five dimensions, have until now been
Asymptotically anti–de Sitter spacetimes and scalar fields with a logarithmic branch
We consider a self-interacting scalar field whose mass saturates the Breitenlohner-Freedman bound, minimally coupled to Einstein gravity with a negative cosmological constant in $Dg~3$ dimensions. It
Gravitational energy in quadratic-curvature gravities.
Energy (E) is defined and its values for gravitational systems involving terms quadratic in curvature are computed for combined Einstein-quadratic curvature systems without explicit Lambda-term vacuum; the effects on energy definition of higher curvature terms and of higher dimension are discussed.
