# General relativistic spin-orbit and spin–spin effects on the motion of rotating particles in an external gravitational field

@article{Iorio2010GeneralRS, title={General relativistic spin-orbit and spin–spin effects on the motion of rotating particles in an external gravitational field}, author={Lorenzo Iorio}, journal={General Relativity and Gravitation}, year={2010}, volume={44}, pages={719-736} }

We analytically compute the orbital effects induced on the motion of a spinning particle geodesically traveling around a central rotating body by the general relativistic two-body spin–spin and spin-orbit leading-order interactions. Concerning the spin-orbit term, we compute the long-term variations due to the particle’s spin by finding secular precessions for the inclination I of the particle’s orbit, its longitude of the ascending node Ω and the longitude of pericenter $${\varpi}$$ . Moreover…
