### Description

In many situations in Newtonian Gravity, understanding the motion of the
center of mass of a system is key to understanding the general "trend"
of the motion of the system. It is thus desirable to also devise a
notion of center of mass with similar properties in General Relativity.
However, while the definition of the center of mass via the mass density
is straightforward in Newtonian Gravity, there is a priori no definitive
corresponding notion in General Relativity. Instead, there are several
alternative approaches to defining the center of mass of a system. We
will discuss some of these different approaches for both asymptotically
Euclidean and asymptotically hyperbolic systems and present some new
ideas as well as explicit (counter-)examples.
