Here we wish to discuss the improvements obtainable in the measurement of the general relativistic Lense—Thirring effect with the LAGEOS and LAGEOS II satellites, in terms of reliability of the evaluation of the systematic error and reduction of its magnitude, due to the new CHAMP and GRACE Earth gravity models. 
Some comments on the recent results about the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect in the gravitational field of the Earth with the LAGEOS and LAGEOS II satellites
With quantitative numerical simulations we show that the secular variations of the even zonal harmonics of the geopotential do affect the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect with the nodes of
Some comments about a recent paper on the measurement of the general relativistic Lense-Thirring effect in the gravitational field of the Earth with the laser-ranged LAGEOS and LAGEOS II satellites
In this brief note some comments about the observable used in a recently published paper on the measurement of the general relativistic Lense-Thirring in the gravitational field of the Earth are
On the possibility of testing the Dvali–Gabadadze–Porrati brane-world scenario with orbital motions in the Solar System
Recently it has been suggested to use the perigee of the proposed LARES/WEBER-SAT satellite in order to measure the secular precession which would be induced on such a Keplerian orbital element by a
On a possible new approach for investigating the secular variations of the low-degree geopotential coefficients
In this paper we try to suggest a possible novel method to determine some selected even zonal harmonics J_l of the Earth's geopotential. Time series many years long of suitably linearly combined
On the effects of Dvali–Gabadadze–Porrati braneworld gravity on the orbital motion of a test particle
In this paper, we explicitly work out the secular perturbations induced on all the Keplerian orbital elements of a test body to order in the eccentricity e by the weak-field long-range modifications

The Impact of the Static Part of the Earth's Gravity Field on Some Tests of General Relativity with Satellite Laser Ranging
In this paper we calculate explicitly the classical secular precessions of the node Ω and the perigee ω of an Earth artificial satellite induced by the even zonal harmonics of the static part of the
On a new method to measure the gravitomagnetic field using two orbiting satellites
SummaryWe describe a new method to obtain the first direct measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect, or dragging of inertial frames, and the first direct detection of the gravitomagnetic field. This
Measurement of the Lense-Thirring drag on high-altitude, laser-ranged artificial satellites.
We describe a new method of measuring the Lense-Thirring relativistic nodal drag using LAGEOS together with another high-altitude, laser-ranged, similar satellite with appropriately chosen orbital
The 1995-99 measurements of the Lense-Thirring effect using laser-ranged satellites
In general relativity a current of mass-energy, such as a spinning body, gives rise to peculiar phenomena on bodies, particles and clocks in its vicinity, which are not predicted by the Newtonian
Measuring the relativistic perigee advance with satellite laser ranging
The pericentric advance of a test body by a central mass is one of the classical tests of general relativity. Today, this effect is measured with radar ranging by the perihelion shift of Mercury and
The LARES mission revisited: an alternative scenario
In the original LARES mission, the general relativistic Lense–Thirring effect was to be detected using as an observable the sum of the residuals of the nodes of the existing passive geodetic
Earth Tides and Lense–Thirring Effect
The general relativistic Lense—Thirring effect can be measured by inspecting a suitable combination of the orbital residuals of the nodes of LAGEOS and LAGEOS II and the perigee of LAGEOS II. The
