On Possible A-Priori "Imprinting" of General Relativity Itself on the Performed Lense-Thirring Tests with LAGEOS Satellites

Abstract

The impact of possible a-priori “imprinting” effects of general relativity itself on recent attempts to measure the general relativistic Lense-Thirring effect with the LAGEOS satellites orbiting the Earth and the terrestrial geopotential models from the dedicated mission GRACE is investigated. It is analytically shown that general relativity, not explicitly… (More)
