General Relativistic Two-Body Problem: Theory and Experiment and the Role of Hidden Momentum
Emphasis will be placed on unusual aspects of our derivation, particularly the use of techniques from the more developed realm of QED (quantum electrodynamics). We obtain explicit results for the precession of the spin (rotation) and orbital effects and we discuss the relatively recent (2008) verification of our spin precession result. Unusual features of our orbital precession analysis is the appearance of hidden momentum effects whose origins may be traced to a special relativistic effect.
