# Angular momentum flux in Einstein-Maxwell theory

Playing this video requires the latest flash player from Adobe.

While all methods are equally valid and have their own range of usefulness, it is reasonable to ask if one definition is more natural than the other. In order to answer this question, we turn to general relativity. With Maxwell theory coupled to gravity, we use the Wald-Zoupas formalism to obtain an expression for the flux of angular momentum and find that it is purely radiative. When the gravitational field is frozen'', the Wald-Zoupas flux reduces to the Noether flux.
