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.

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… Expand

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… Expand

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… Expand
