Calculation of Apsidal Precession via Perturbation Theory

  title={Calculation of Apsidal Precession via Perturbation Theory},
  author={L. Barbieri and Federico Talamucci},
  journal={Advances in Astrophysics},
The calculus of apsidal precession frequencies of the planets is developed by means of a perturbation thecnique. A model of concentric rings (ring model), suitable for improving calculations, is introduced. Conclusive remarks concerning a comparison between the theoretical, the calculated and the observed data of the precession frequencies are performed.

Precession of the perihelion of Mercury’s orbit
The precession of the perihelion of Mercury’s orbit is calculated using the Laplace–Runge–Lenz vector. An approximate calculation that assumes the orbits of the perturbing planets are circular and
Advance of perihelion
The advance of perihelion, in particular for Mercury, is regarded as a classical test of general relativity, but a number of other (in some cases much larger) contributions to this phenomenon are
Precession of Mercury’s Perihelion from Ranging to the MESSENGER Spacecraft
The perihelion of Mercury’s orbit precesses due to perturbations from other solar system bodies, solar quadrupole moment (J2), and relativistic gravitational effects that are proportional to linear
