# A question about Wald's paper on the conserved quantities

#### qinglong.1397

Wald and Zoupas discussed the general definition of conserved quantities" in a diffeomorphism invariant theory in this work. In Section IV, they gave one expression (33) in the linked article. I cannot really understand the logic of this expression. Would you please help me with this?
