From a covariant Hamiltonian formulation, using symplectic ideas, we obtain covariant quasilocal energy-momentum boundary expressions for general gravity theories. The expressions depend on which variables are fixed on the boundary, on a reference configuration and a displacement vector field. We consider applications to Einstein's theory, black hole thermodynamics and alternate spinor expressions. © 1995.
