  author={Bruce M. Barker and R. F. O’Connell},
  journal={General Relativity and Gravitation},
Previous work on spin, rotation, and quantum effects in gravitation is surveyed, with particular emphasis on the gravitational two-body interaction, both for elementary particles and for macroscopic bodies. Applications considered include (a) the precession of a gyroscope, (b) rotational effects on the equations of motion for the orbit, (c) binary systems, particularly the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16, and (d) the prospects of measuring spin-orbit and spin-spin forces in the laboratory.

General treatment of quantum and classical spinning particles in external fields
We develop the general theory of spinning particles with electric and magnetic dipole moments moving in arbitrary electromagnetic, inertial and gravitational fields. Both the quantum-mechanical and

Dipolar particles in general relativity
The dynamics of ‘dipolar particles’, i.e. particles endowed with a 4-vector mass dipole moment, is investigated using an action principle in general relativity. The action is a specific functional of
Spin in an arbitrary gravitational field
We study the quantum mechanics of a Dirac fermion on a curved spacetime manifold. The metric of the spacetime is completely arbitrary, allowing for the discussion of all possible inertial and

We study the quantum mechanics of a Dirac fermion on a curved spacetime manifold. The metric of the spacetime is completely arbitrary, allowing for the discussion of all possible inertial and
Fourth post-Newtonian effective-one-body Hamiltonians with generic spins
In a compact binary coalescence, the spins of the compact objects can have a significant effect on the orbital motion and gravitational-wave (GW) emission. For generic spin orientations, the orbital
General relativistic spin-orbit and spin–spin effects on the motion of rotating particles in an external gravitational field
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
Higher-order spin effects in the dynamics of compact binaries. II. Radiation field
Motivated by the search for gravitational waves emitted by binary black holes, we investigate the gravitational radiation field of point particles with spins within the framework of the
Spin dynamics in gravitational fields of rotating bodies and the equivalence principle
We discuss the quantum and classical dynamics of a particle with spin in the gravitational field of a rotating source. A relativistic equation describing the motion of classical spin in curved

General Relativity with Spin and Torsion: Foundations and Prospects
A generalization of Einstein's gravitational theory is discussed in which the spin of matter as well as its mass plays a dynamical role. The spin of matter couples to a non-Riemannian structure in
Can quantum gravitational forces stop gravitational collapse?
We consider, in lowest order of the gravitational coupling constant G, the gravitational potential between two neutrons. As we have previously pointed out [1],the quantum (including spin)
Gauge Transformation and Gravitational Potentials
It is believed in particle physics that the velocity-dependent part of potential is, in general, ambiguous as far as it is derived from S-matrix. We consider the most general form of the graviton
The Gravitational equations and the problem of motion
Introduction. In this paper we investigate the fundamentally simple question of the extent to which the relativistic equations of gravitation determine the motion of ponderable bodies. Previous
The interaction of elementary particles of several different spins due to the exchange of a graviton is investigated. The exact one-graviton exchange potentials are obtained, and then simplified by
Velocity of Gravitational Waves
OBSERVATIONS by Weber1 indicate that waves may exist in the gravitational field in space. Wave motion in general requires transfer of energy between two modes of energy storage. The existence of

This section examines the experimental basis of Einstein's theory of gravitation, and the principle of equivalence, which is expressed in the following way: all observations made locally on a system in a static, uniform gravitational field in the absence of local background matter agree with corresponding observations made on the same system when it is subjected to an equivalent acceleration in the presence of the field.
Translational Inertial Spin Effect with Moving Particles
Although the final conclusion of a preceding paper was incorrect the main point remains, and should entail the existence of sui generis recoil effects associated with nonzero values of curl sigma (
