Gravitational Anomalies in the Solar System
Mindful of the anomalous perihelion precession of Mercury discovered by Le Verrier in the second half of the nineteenth century and its successful explanation by Einstein with his General Theory ofExpand

An Empirical Explanation of the Anomalous Increases in the Astronomical Unit and the Lunar Eccentricity
The subject of this paper is the empirically determined anomalous secular increases of the astronomical unit, of the order of some cm yr–1, and of the eccentricity of the lunar orbit, of the order ofExpand

Solar system planetary orbital motions and dark matter
In this paper we explicitly work out the effects that a spherically symmetric distribution of dark matter with constant density would induce on the Keplerian orbital elements of the Solar SystemExpand

Classical and relativistic node precessional effects in WASP-33b and perspectives for detecting them
WASP-33 is a fast rotating, main sequence star which hosts a hot Jupiter moving along a retrograde and almost polar orbit with semi-major axis a=0.02 au and eccentricity provisionally set to e=0. TheExpand

Phenomenology of the Lense-Thirring effect in the solar system
Recent years have seen increasing efforts to directly measure some aspects of the general relativistic gravitomagnetic interaction in several astronomical scenarios in the solar system. After brieflyExpand

On the reliability of the so-far performed tests for measuring the Lense-Thirring effect with the LAGEOS satellites
In this paper, we critically discuss the so-far performed attempts aimed at the detection of the general relativistic gravitomagnetic Lense–Thirring effect in the gravitational field of the EarthExpand

What do the orbital motions of the outer planets of the Solar System tell us about the Pioneer anomaly
Abstract In this paper, we investigate the effects that an anomalous acceleration as that experienced by the Pioneer spacecraft after they passed the 20 AU threshold would induce on the orbitalExpand

Constraints from orbital motions around the Earth of the environmental fifth-force hypothesis for the OPERA superluminal neutrino phenomenology
A bstractIt has been recently suggested by Dvali and Vikman that the superluminal neutrino phenomenology of the OPERA experiment may be due to an environmental feature of the Earth, naturallyExpand

Constraints on the range lambda of Yukawa-like modifications to the Newtonian inverse-square law of gravitation from Solar System planetary motions
In this paper we use the latest corrections to the Newton-Einstein secular perihelion rates of some planets of the Solar System, phenomenologically estimated with the EPM2004 ephemerides by theExpand

On the anomalous secular increase of the eccentricity of the orbit of the Moon
A recent analysis of a Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR) data record spanning 38.7 yr revealed an anomalous increase of the eccentricity e of the lunar orbit amounting to u emeas = (9 ± 3) × 10 12 yr 1 . TheExpand
