Rotating solutions of cosmological Einstein gravity in D dimensions, R-mu v = (D - 1)Lambda g(mu v), have been constructed recently [1, 2], extending earlier A = 0 solutions of [3], themselves generalizations of the well-known D = 4 metrics of [4] and [5], and of [6] in D = 5. These geometries provide a useful application of our recent generalized 'conserved charge' definitions, which are also extensions-of the original ADM [7], and AD [9] charges-to cover wider classes of actions [9, 11]: we will compute the energy and angular momenta of these new solutions.
