Taub numbers are studied as a set of tensorial conservation laws derivable from curves of solutions to the vacuum Einstein equations. A formulation for Taub numbers of all orders is provided as well as a derivation of the Xanthopoulos theorem. Taub numbers are computed for the Schwarzschild and Kerr solutions viewed as perturbations of Minkowski spacetime and the Schwarzschild solution. They are found to give a measure of the mass and angular momentum and are free of the factor of 2 anomaly associated with the Komar numbers. Taub numbers are also computed for the stationary perturbations of the Schwarzschild solution.Dept. of Physics.
