# Gravitomagnetism and the Clock Effect

@inproceedings{Mashhoon1999GravitomagnetismAT, title={Gravitomagnetism and the Clock Effect}, author={Bahram Mashhoon and Frank Gronwald and Herbert I. M. Lichtenegger}, year={1999} }

The main theoretical aspects of gravitomagnetism are reviewed. It is shown that the gravitomagnetic precession of a gyroscope is intimately connected with the special temporal structure around a rotating mass that is revealed by the gravitomagnetic clock effect. This remarkable effect, which involves the difference in the proper periods of a standard clock in prograde and retrograde circular geodesic orbits around a rotating mass, is discussed in detail. The implications of this effect for the… Expand

As a consequence of gravitomagnetism, which is a fundamental weak-field prediction of general relativity and ubiquitous in gravitational phenomena, clocks show a difference in their proper periods… Expand

Generalized gravitomagnetic clock effect
