In the first half of this article, we survey the new quasi-local and total angular momentum and center of mass defined in  and summarize the important properties of these definitions. To compute these conserved quantities involves solving a nonlinear PDE
system (the optimal isometric embedding equation), which is rather difficult in general. We found a large family of initial data sets on which such a calculation can be carried out effectively. These are initial data sets of harmonic asymptotics, first proposed by
Corvino and Schoen to solve the full vacuum constraint equation. In the second half of this article, the new total angular momentum and center of mass for these initial data sets are computed explicitly.
